Discover more about this print

‘Academy’ is a collaged-based composition which affectionately caricatures the spectators of mimicked 18th and 19th century paintings hung in the grand and formal surroundings of The Academy. 

With Peter Blake’s characteristic humour, this print juxtaposes a delightful array of characters, including Ian Dury, angelic children, milkmaids, and Liberty Blake in a kimono, with an eclectic mix of printed materials. Replacing the ‘high art’ expected at the historic art institution are a cheeky nude Victorian postcard, a vey kitsch kitten and even a panel from Blake’s own ‘Got a Girl’ painting of 1960-81. 

‘Academy’ is a signed silkscreen print from a limited edition of 150 with glazes.
