During the 1960s Peter Blake became one of the most successful figures in British art, with his iconic cover for The Beatles’ album ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’. In 1969 he moved to Wellow, near Bath, with his wife Jann Haworth and their daughters. His work took a new direction, shifting towards themes more appropriate to family life in a rural setting – narrative and literary subjects, including fairy paintings. In 1981, the Tate offered Blake a major exhibition, and he produced a body of work especially for the show, including Daisy Fairy. Stylistically & thematically, this work beautifully represents Blake’s Ruralist period.
