Peter Blake is one of the most successful British Pop artists from the fabulous 1960s, and his work can be found in major museums and collections worldwide. It was with the Young Contemporaries exhibition of 1961, where he exhibited alongside David Hockney and R.B. Kitaj, that Blake rose to prominence. Blake created this limited edition print, a tribute to the Art Car, exclusively for the Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair 2013. The work sold out completely in less than 15 minutes. It is in excellent condition. Pencil signed and numbered from the limited edition of only 100. The excitement of the event was described in a British news report as follows: "Now in its 110th year, the fair it featured work by over 70 renowned artists including Sir Peter Blake, Gavin Turk, Emin International, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, Bob & Roberta Smith, Pam Hogg, Pure Evil and Marcus Harvey who was selling copies of his Margaret Thatcher print. Many of the artists pitched up to stalls to personally sell their original and limited edition works of art at bargain prices. Tracey Emin had her crew selling small folios of six prints for £50, all were signed, dated and stamped by the artist, so said the stall holders."
Hand signed and numbered from an edition of 100.
