Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


Yoko Ono: Ceiling Painting (Yes Painting)

Yoko Ono - Indica Gallery 1966

Yoko Ono, "Ceiling Painting (Yes Painting)," 1966/1998. Ink on canvas, metal frame, magnifying glass, metal chain, painted ladder.

"Ceiling Painting" was displayed in the entrance area to the main house at Tittenhurst Park whilst John Lennon and Yoko Ono lived there between 1969 and 1971. John Lennon can be see climbing the rungs and taking the magnifying glass to examine the word YES on a canvas suspended from the ceiling; it was this same piece that inspired John Lennon at John Dunbar's Indica Gallery, London in 1966 and to acquaint himself with the artist, Yoko Ono.
