About the artwork
Painted in 1959, this mixed media piece demonstrates Blake’s feel for mixing traditional art with the scale and ambition of colour field painting. The frieze of images at the top is a series of postcard reproductions of classical paintings and sculpture, while the bold panels of colour that make up the majority of the work recall the abstract experiments of the late 1950s and early 60s.

About the artist
One of the leading figures in British pop art, Peter Blake is known for his urban realist subjects. Born in Dartford in 1932, he moved to London to study at the Royal College of Art in 1956. Remaining in the city for more than a decade, Blake was at the cultural centre of vibrant 1960s London. His work fuses high art and popular culture, referencing historical artworks, weekly magazines, children’s stories, movie stars and musicians. His output is famously broad ranging and includes painting, graphic design, collage, book illustration, sculpture and printing. He was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at Tate Britain in 1983.
