AboutThe âGodfather of British Pop Art', Peter Blake, will be rounding up a year of celebrations for his eightieth birthday with a show at the Bohun Gallery, Henley on Thames. This major print show will offer collectors the opportunity to acquire work reflecting most aspects of the artist's career. The works perfectly capture the effervescent and optimistic ethos of the sixties,but are also strikingly fresh and contemporary. The work of this great British icon continues to cross all generational divides and inspires great respect from younger artists such as Damien Hirst, Gavin Turk and Tracey Emin.
This will be a double celebration as the Bohun Gallery marks its 40th year in fine art in 2013. Patricia Jordan Evans, director of the Bohun Gallery, held her first Peter Blake show at the Henley on Thames gallery in 1979 and has gone on to exhibit Blake's work regularly; so it seems fitting that the Bohun will be starting their 40th celebrations with a show of this iconic artists' work.
