Born in 1932, Sir Peter Blake studied at the Royal College of Art, (1953-56) where he later taught (1964-76). Known for his iconic album cover for the Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper, it was during the 1960s that Blake emerged as a painter, frequently using collages of advertisements and Pop icons to capture the culture of the period.
He also worked with printmaking and painting and in 1975 founded The Brotherhood of Ruralists, a group of seven painters who united in their love of the countryside. Blake’s work is held in several collections worldwide including Museum of Modern Art, New York; Bilbao Fine Arts Museum; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia; Tate Gallery, London; MUMOK - Museum of Moderner Kunst Stiftlung Ludwig and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
