World Tour: Cannes- Statuary signed limited edition silkscreen print by British pop art master Sir Peter Blake. Blake combines the serenity of a sunny evening in Cannes with a bizarre crowd of collaged figures who are appreciating a collection of statuary. We see Blake's joy in playing with perspective, helping to accentuate the surreal nature of the image. The statuary Blake chooses is dominated by ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, whilst the crowd is composed of figures from every conceivable time and location. Perhaps Blake is making a witty play on the idea of people 'posing' on the beach. Certainly the human body as depicted in ancient sculpture has always been considered the height of perfection, something we all strive to achieve when posing in our beachwear!

Edition of 100. Printed on 410gsm Somerset tub sized paper. 24 colour, Gloss Glaze.
