Paris: Chicken Act, screenprint by Peter Blake


Price is for unframed print

Paris- Chicken Act signed limited edition silkscreen print by British contemporary artist Sir Peter Blake

The Garnier Opera House seems to inspire avian thoughts in Blake, for his Birds (Paris Quartet) was set in the same location. Peter returns to his circus theme by having chickens and splendid cockerels re-enact the human tower of 10 Man Upright and Four Man Up . The cockerel is of course a symbol of France; perhaps Blake could be making a little tongue in cheek reference to the Gallic love of display. Again Blake plays with scale- the size of the horse revealing the chickens to be giants. Gathered around this unusual sight is a classic Blake ‘magic crowd’ made up of diverse engraved heads selected from his huge collection of printed material.
