'The Aquarium - Large' is a stunning silkscreen print with glazes by British Pop Art legend Sir Peter Blake. 

The impressive marine menagerie is part of Blake’s celebrated ‘The Classroom Suite’. It is an incredibly detailed vision of aquatic life, complete with underwater palaces, a sunken galleon and coral reef. The densely packed fish create an arresting, pattern-like, vision. 

The print is of an original collage created by Peter Blake. Each fish was sourced from old reference and fishing books and cut-out by hand. The perfectionism and attention to minute detail is startling, although Blake has described his ‘cutting sessions’ as relaxation, “I have a very comfortable desk in the sitting room and I sit with my back to the television – although if the football is on, I’ll turn round to watch the goal when they play it again – and cut things out…”
