American Trilogy (black and silver gloss)- signed limited edition silkscreen print with silver leaf, embossing and glazes by Peter Blake. Available to buy as a set of three.

Three American icons: the stars and Stripes, Elvis Presley and Coca Cola are combined to create the American Trilogy, a classic pop art image by Sir Peter Blake. American Trilogy celebrates the roots of Pop Art; featuring imagery that represents the power of mass consumer products and popular culture, and reflecting the fact that America lead mass culture revolution in the 1950s. There are three versions of this silkscreen print; all feature embossing and hand-applied gold or silver leaf, and two are finished with diamond dust. This repetition of imagery with a slight variation on colour or surface texture is reminiscent of the work of Andy Warhol and serves the double purpose of reflecting the endless ‘sameness’ of mass production and  rooting the American Trilogy deep in the Pop Art tradition. The choice of monochrome background colours lends greater visual impact to the trilogy motifs, as well as marking a more subtle and sophisticated approach by Blake in his latest work.
