Revisiting his 1959 mixed media piece "The Fine Art Bit" Blake explores ideas about art and its reproduction. The boldly-coloured stripes relate to everyday images such as flags, packaging and signage. He juxtaposes them with a traditional idea of ‘high art’, represented by a frieze of postcard reproductions of art works from the past. The images are of paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, Diego Valazquez, Johannes Vermeer and Stanley Spencer.

Limited edition silkscreen, signed and numbered.

Edition of 175.
