Catalogue Note

“Peter Blake was the Godfather of Pop Art. Incorporating the universal language of popular culture in his vibrant collages, he expertly captured the zeitgeist of the time. His celebrated commissions for some of the greatest bands of the 20th century, most famously for The Beatles, have transcended their intended purpose to become icons of the age - a perfect pairing to the swinging sixties and to the spirit of the post-war Britain. With this magnificent label for Macallan’s finest vintage, Blake has put his stamp on yet another one of life’s great pleasures.”
– Oliver Barker
Chairman, Sotheby's Europe
Senior International Specialist, Contemporary Art
