Sir Peter Blake Signed Screen Print Fine Art Bits

Lot 0022
Fine Art Bits By Sir Peter Blake is a silkscreen limited edition print based on Sir Peter Blake’s work in the early 60’s. The old and new maters paintings featured at the top of the print are by Thomas Gainsborough, Diego Valazquez, Johannes Vermeer and Stanley Spencer. 'Here Blake is playing with ideas about art and its reproduction. The boldly-coloured stripes relate to everyday images such as flags, packaging and signage. They may also refer to the hard-edged abstract painting of the late 1950s.
Blake juxtaposes them with a traditional idea of ‘high art’, represented by a frieze of postcard reproductions of paintings and sculptures from the past.' Signed and Numbered 33 x 24"/26 x 18"
