Eiffel Tower signed limited edition silkscreen print with glazes by British Pop artist Sir Peter Blake.
Following the massive success of the Venice Suite, CCA are delighted to announce the release of the Paris Quartet: Eiffel Tower, Four Man Up, Birds, and Dancing, Place de la Concorde. In the same whimsical and comedic style in which Blake evoked the canals of Venice, he now guides us through the city of light. Blake again creates his compositions through collage, running the full gamut from the delicate sentimentality of Eiffel Tower to the joyously absurd sight of the Opera Garnier under the weight of an ornithological overload in Birds. Blake once again finds inspiration in the pages of his Larousse illustrated dictionary and animal husbandry manuals; juxtaposing the best of Parisian architecture with an eclectic selection of human figures from every conceivable ethnographical background and beautiful illustrations bird and beast.
Though these images are packed full of unexpected and out of place content, Blake somehow captures the essence of Paris; that joie de vivre and spirit of bohemisnism and surrealism that pervades the air.
Each silkscreen print in the Paris Quartet is from an edition of 125, each is signed and numbered by the artist.
