Paul McCartney, a painting of Elvis floating above a bucolic scene and a pencil sketch of a little boy and a woman titled, "And it was me all the time, Aunty." Both pictures measure 8" x 13" and were created on the backs of what appears to be a typed lists of schools. McCartney created this painting while attending the Liverpool Institute, probably during his latter years there. He left the Institute in July 1960 for the Beatles first stay in Hamburg, Germany. The painting and the sketch each come with a letter from Beatles handwriting expert Frank Caiazzo. Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000.
