Klaus Voormann’s Revolver 50: The Collage Series

Last Few Collages by Klaus Voormann

On Saturday, Genesis Publications opened its doors for an unforgettable afternoon with Klaus Voormann.
The Gallery & Reading Rooms were transformed into an Open House, exhibiting an array of stunning Revolver 50 Collages, alongside a room dedicated to Klaus's Hamburg Days drawings and oil paintings.
We were delighted to welcome over 100 Genesis subscribers, who chatted with Klaus while he signed their Revolver 50 event plates. Manfred Mann lead singer Paul Jones and photographer Mike McCartney also popped by to see the exhibition.

Our thanks to everyone who came to Guildford for this very special occasion. We will share a photo gallery with more images from the day very soon.

The Revolver 50 Collage has proven very popular and, of the 250 created, there are now only 30 left. Every hand-coloured collaged artwork is unique. Subscribers ordering from the last 30 collages will receive a special event plate, signed by Klaus Voormann.
