Exhibition | Sir Peter Blake – Rare Silkscreen Prints
A unique exhibition of highly sought-after, limited edition screenprints by the British Pop Art master
Join us for the exciting chance to see and snap up the final remaining editions in a series of iconic prints from the legendary Sir Peter Blake.
This unique selling exhibition of screenprints hails from the private collection of For Arts Sake directors Brian and Melanie Davis, who have been collecting and showing Sir Peter’s works for many years.
The hugely sought-after pieces on show are all virtually sold out. Among them are the signed limited edition silkscreen with glazes ‘100 Sources of Pop Art’, which gathers together the various visual sources that have inspired Sir Peter throughout his career; ‘Wink’, ‘Girlie Door’ and ‘I Love You’, which all form part of the 12-piece series Replay; and the powerful silkscreen with diamond dust, ‘Marilyn Monroe, Black’.
For Arts Sake director Brian Davis said: “A number of these pieces have been in our collection since they were first published; many are wonderfully iconic images, and we are delighted now to be able to exhibit them for sale to our print collectors.”
Also on show, but not for sale, is ‘The First Print Target’, a 2008 silkscreen revisiting Sir Peter’s 1961 painting ‘The First Real Target’ – an homage and challenge to Jasper Johns. This 22-colour silkscreen edition is now completely sold out but will be on show for Blake buffs to view in person.
This exhibition is on for a limited time only. Don’t miss the chance to see, and own, a piece of art history.
