We are delighted to have the recently released ‘Under Milk Wood Print Portfolio’ at artrepublic. This portfolio, by our cherished Sir Peter Blake, is a breathtaking collection of images from Peter Blake’s acclaimed illustration of ‘Under Milk Wood’ by Dylan Thomas.
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 last year 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 stunning portfolio typifies the intriguing tableaux and enchanting phantasms of the iconic play.
The portfolio features signed limited edition prints 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. It is the astonishing cumulative creative output of two of the grandees of British culture combined. We don’t suppose they will be in our care for long...
