Paintings Of The Who To Auction

A collection of 45 paintings of The Who by the late artist John Davies is on display at the Idea Generation Gallery in London this week.  The exhibit comes down Oct. 9 and will be auctioned Oct. 14  by the Fame Bureau.  The paintings, many of which appear in the book A Decade Of The Who, are expected to sell in a single lot and bring upwards of $260,000.  Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend commissioned Davies to produce the series after meeting the artist at an exhibit of his work inspired by the lyrics to Tommy, the band's 1969 Rock Opera.  Davies lost his life in a car crash three years ago.
