Photo of happy Beatles at Ringo Starr’’s wedding goes on tourJanuary 12th, 2009 - 7:01 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 12 (ANI): A photograph of the Beatles clicked at Ringo Starr’’s wedding to Barbara Bach in 1981 will be part of a touring exhibition.
The wedding took place less than six months after John Lennon was shot dead, and the picture showed just the two other remaining ex-Beatles and their wives.
The image, from the National Portrait Gallery, is currently at Museums Sheffield as part of the NPG’’s touring exhibition Family Album.
Family Album brings together highlights from the National Portrait Gallery’’s collections to examine how family life has been represented by artists over the centuries, the Telegraph quoted a spokesman for Museums Sheffield as saying.
The exhibition examines how notions of family have altered following significant developments such as divorce and civil partnerships, he added. (ANI)
