Although the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine may not seem the obvious choice for interpretation by Alex Ross, the acclaimed painter has partnered with Dark Hall Mansion to produce a limited-edition print based on George Dunning’s groundbreaking 1968 animated film.
“For as long as I can remember hearing music, I have loved the Beatles,” Ross said in a statement. “Not only do I believe they are the greatest musical group of all time, but also one of the greatest things to have happened in human history. Yellow Submarine has also been one of my favorite films since I was 6 years old. The opportunity to work with the Beatles’ likenesses in the very inspired context of the Yellow Submarine film is an absolute dream come true. There is so much I love about these men, their legacy, and this film.”
Measuring 72 inches long, the officially licensed prints are each signed by Ross. The paper edition, limited to 295 copies, costs $375; the canvas edition, limited to 125 pieces, is $550. Both go on sale Feb. 26 at 9:30 a.m. PT at the Dark Hall Mansion online store.
