Sir Peter Blake and Friends celebrates Blake’s print oeuvre, with over 45 prints on show ranging from his 1991 Alphabet series through well-loved series such as Fag Packet and Replay, to the more recent Vichy, Paris and World Tour. This is the first time we have had access to such exciting and sought-after print editions from one of Britain’s best-loved artists, and presents a rare opportunity to view and buy these in a gallery environment. Alongside we will be showing classic prints from Blake’s fellow Royal Academicians John Hoyland and Barbara Rae, plus new work from his friends and contemporaries Brad Faine, Bruce McLean and Patrick Hughes.
