Peter Blake came to prominence in the 1960’s from the English Pop art group of artists. He used images from a range of popular sources to create colourful works that capture the flavour of the 'swinging sixties'. Well this is grand! Said Alice is one of the wonderful photographically based illustrations to Alice in Wonderland. Much of Blake’s art reflects his affection and nostalgia for the popular culture of his childhood. His use of colour and photography helps create a sense of mystery that attracts the viewer to the works.
