Peter Blake

Sir Peter Blake, born in 1932 in Kent, was one of Britain’s first pioneers of the Pop Art movement whose emergence in the art world coincided with the birth of the ‘swinging sixties’. A contemporary of David Hockney and R. B. Kitaj, his most famous works were the commissions for album sleeves he received throughout his career and it was his design for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967 which first propelled him beyond the world of art critics and well into the public eye. He was appointed an R.A. in 1981, awarded a C.B.E. in 1983 and finally knighted for his services to art in 2002.
