Widely regarded as the godfather of British Pop art and the Young British Artists movement, Peter Blake creates paintings, collages, and prints that blend modernity and nostalgia. Though best known for designing the album cover for the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, he considers painting to be central to his oeuvre. He remains one of the very few artists who have achieved both genuine popularity and critical appreciation.
‘Q is for Quarters’ forms part of a set of bold and colourful silkscreen prints produced in 1991, one for each letter of the alphabet. Each print adopts Peter Blake’s typical and unmissable style of working, incorporating ‘found’ imagery from magazines, postcards and popular ephemera. In this piece we see Peter Blake revert to his iconic pop art simplicity and boldness, dividing the paper into quarters of bright block colour. This print is sold framed and in excellent condition.
