Alphabet : The letter V (Artist Proof)

Peter Blake’s Alphabet Series celebrates the Latin alphabet through a contemporary collage style with a Victoriana twist.

Here, the letter V sits at the heart of the print in thick, black type. Around it Blake has collaged vintage scraps of image and type: the letter V appears over and again in different fonts, colours, shapes and sizes, while vans and violins, vultures and vowel charts are peppered across the page.

Blake is heralded as a pioneer of British pop art in the 1960s. Perhaps his best known work, the album cover for The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band, has cemented Blake as one of the leading names in collage, and he continues to push the bar with innovative approaches to the art of cut-and-paste.

This print is one of 5 artist’s proofs, each hand signed by Blake himself: a truly unmissable opportunity for the rare art collector or the pop devotee.

    About the artist
    +

    Heralded as the ‘Godfather of Pop Art’, Sir Peter Blake was knighted in 2002 for his invaluable contribution to contemporary art. 

    Blake began his career creating collages from photographs, cigarette packets and matchboxes. This new approach to the creation of visual art – taking found imagery from Pop culture – was spearheaded in Britain by Blake and continues to inspire contemporary artists today. 

    Best known for creating the iconic cover to the Beatles’ 1967 album ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, Blake continues to produce work that draws extensively on elements from popular cultures around the world.
