John Lennon’s self-portrait depicting himself as Hitler sells for $54,000

A self-portrait sketch drawn by The Beatles’ John Lennon depicting himself as Adolf Hitler has sold for $54,000 (£38,573) at auction.

Lennon, who began attending the Liverpool College of Art in 1957, drew the doodle during his time studying and captured the image with the words “Heil John, Heil John, Heil John, Heil.”

President of the memorabilia dealer, Gary Zimet, told Page Six: “He drew these when he was a college student, and the fact that he even thought of depicting himself as Hitler is weird.”

“Original Lennon drawings are very desirable and they are ultra rare”.
