Peter Blake became one of the best known artists of Pop Art as early as the 1950s. His motifs come from pop culture, advertisements and the circus, from comics and postcards. He creates collages and assemblages, often combined with painted elements. In the 1960s he achieved worldwide fame for the design, together with his wife at that time, Jann Haworth, of the record cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles, for which they received a Grammy Award in 1968. In the “London” Series, Blake peopled views of famous streets, parks and buildings of the English capital with collaged figures of humans and animals.
