Comment: Joseph Cornell's Holiday Margate is a touching tribute to one of Peter Blake's heroes, the artist Joseph Cornell. Peter Blake attended the Margate Art Boot Fair to oversee the sale of this beautiful special edition and to meet and chat to the purchasers of this work. The edition was fully sold out on the day.

The text on the image reads "The Grotto at Margate" and "Arch in Chamber" and the text in the border reads "Margate Art Car Boot Fair. 2015. 'Joseph Cornell's Holiday Margate'. Me aged 1 in 1933, with Joseph Cornell."

This edition followed an "In Conversation With" Sir Peter Blake evening at the Royal Academy of Arts where the artist discussed the work of Joseph Cornell.
