World Tour: Chicago, Boating
World Tour: Chicago- Boating signed limited edition silkscreen print by British pop artist Sir Peter Blake. Blake takes a break from Europe and hops over to Chicago for a spot of boating. The boats themselves are particularly American; with a paddle steamer emblazoned with the word 'Iowa' visible in the background, and a motor boat with 'America' painted on its hull in the middleground. The boats are also reminiscent of the many who emigrated across the sea for a better life in the United Sates. This feeling is heightened by the figure of a man paddling on a makeshift raft in the foreground, and the array of international costume worn by some of the passengers.
Available individually as as part of the set of 10 World Tour images.
