Eiffel Tower Paris Quartet signed limited edition silkscreen print in an edition of 125 by the godfather of British Pop Art Sir Peter Blake. Blake again creates his compositions through collage, running the full gamut to create the sentimentality of the Eiffel Tower. 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.
