His interest in and appropriation of popular culture, as seen in his portraits of movie and pop stars and his re-creations of commercial packaging, predated Warhol. In 1967 he created one of the most famous icons of the era, the cover of The Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Here, Natalie Rudd provides a comprehensive account of Blake's wide-ranging and influential oeuvre, one that includes painting, collage, sculpture, and illustration. (570, 0514) .

S L Sarah Lucas

By Matthew Collings

Pages are clean and intact, light soiling to outer edge of pages, light wrinkling to corners of one section of pages. Cover has light corner wear and light scuffing. Illustrated in colour. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 128 pages; The work of Sarah Lucas (b. 1962) , often assembled from everyday materials and dealing with recurrent themes of sex, death, and gender, is laced with a distinctive bleak humor. Her best-known piece is Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab, a work that wittily combines the aforementioned materials with a junk-shop table and manages to comment on not only sexism and gender but also mortality, language, and the tradition of the female nude in Western art. Matthew Collings explores Lucas's art and ideas in this first thorough look at one of today's most important artists. (570,0514) .
