A Retrospective

About

Tate Liverpool presents a major retrospective exhibition of paintings by Peter Blake, the largest since his Tate Gallery exhibition in 1983. A highly influential and original artist, Blake is often described as the godfather of British Pop art and Liverpool's adopted son. This exhibition surveys his rich and diverse oeuvre, presenting familiar icons as well as rarely seen works. Tate Liverpool's retrospective focuses on Blake's two-dimensional work and in particular painting, presenting a diverse body of work from the 1950s to the present day. It includes major icons of twentieth century art, such as On the Balcony 1955-57, The Toy Shop 1962 and The Beatles 1963-68. It concludes with the Marcel Duchamp World Series, a project which has recently occupied the artist.
