Since his emergence in the early 1960s as a key member of the Pop Art movement, Peter Blake (b.1932) has been one of the best-known and widely loved artists of his generation. Blake’s reputation from the outset was based on working across all media. Though primarily a painter, he has produced collages, drawings, watercolors, sculpture, prints, as well as commercial art in the form of graphics and album covers, most notably his design for The Beatles’ “Sgt Pepper album” in 1967. “Peter Blake: One-man Show” considers the artist’s remarkable diversity, assessing his work across all media, from the 1950s to the present. This book reflects the engagingly diverse and endlessly imaginative one-man show that constitutes the extraordinary and prolific work of Peter Blake.
