Peter Blake

Peter Blake Since his emergence in the early 60s as a key member of the burgeoning Pop Art movement, Peter Blake has been one of the best-known British artists of his generation and was knighted three years ago. His 1961 Self-portrait With Badges, where he stands in his denim jeans and jacket, wearing Converse trainers and holding an Elvis album, is one of the iconic images of the time, but Blake`s reputation from the outset, reflecting his broad art education, was based on working across media. He has produced collage, sculpture, engraving and printmaking, as well as commercial art in the form of graphics and, notably, album covers, significantly, his design for The Beatles` Sgt Pepper`s in 1967.
