Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band by British Pop Art legend Sir Peter Blake is a wonderful and now very rare silkscreen print in an edition of 500, of the original artwork for The Beatles’ album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. In 1967 the album cover was created by Sir Peter Blake, one of Britain’s best loved artists and the man known as the Godfather of British Pop Art. This great work of art has become as famous and as iconic as the Mona Lisa and in 2007, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sgt Pepper, Sir Peter Blake created a limited edition print of the work, printed by the famous Coriander Studios in London as a 24 colour silkscreen on 410gsm Somerset archival paper. Signed by the artist we are very excited to be able to offer this very rare print to the market.
