This portfolio of signed limited edition prints is a collection of six breathtaking, richly coloured, watercolours and collages. Each of the six print editions has been printed on beautiful Archival Da Vinci soft textured 315gsm fine art paper, with stochastic pigment ink. This highly collectible portfolio celebrates the completion of a 30-year project by British Pop Art pioneer Sir Peter Blake. The project, to illustrate Dylan Thomas’ 1953 play ‘Under Milk Wood’, was completed to coincide with the centenary of Welsh poet Thomas’s birth. The major body of work, including portraits of each of the 60 characters, was exhibited at The National Museum of Wales in 2013-4.
This portfolio typifies the intriguing tableaux and enchanting phantasms of ‘Under Milk Wood’. It is the astonishing cumulative creative output of two of the grandees of British culture combined.
