Description

The Beatles’ ’Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ album cover resulted from a collaboration between the band and British artist Peter Blake.

About Peter Blake

Sir Peter Blake (English, b. 1932) is an artist living and working in London who is recognized as one of the leading figures and pioneers of the British Pop art style. Blake’s work is inspired by the ephemerality of popular culture, including imagery from advertisements, music hall entertainment, and wrestlers, often adding collaged elements. One of Blake’s most well known works is the album cover art for the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. He was appointed a Royal Academician (RA) in 1981, awarded a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1983 and finally knighted for his services to art in 2002.
