Art of the Day – 03/08/17 (The First Real Target?, Peter Blake)

Daily Artwork — “The First Real Target?, Peter Blake, 1961”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

The foundations of Pop Art in America were laid during the 1950s by Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg. Like Blake, both these artists incorporated images taken from popular culture into a fine art context, and Blake has acknowledged their example. This work refers to Johns’s work in particular. Whereas Johns had taken a familiar object – a target – and executed this motif on the canvas in a painterly style, Blake took this further by using a real archery target purchased from a sports shop. The work of art is consequently less like a painting and is even closer to the real world. Blake thus questions: is this ‘the first real target’? [MUSEUM CARD]

1961 — The First Real Target?.  Enamel on canvas and paper on board.  Pop Art style. Peter Blake (1932-).  Tate Modern, London, UK.

Artwork of the Day – 11/10/15 (Untitled, Eva Hesse)

Daily Artwork — “Untitled, Eva Hesse, 1965”

Use the images posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of an artwork critique.

1965 — Untitled. Ink and Gouache on Paper. Feminist Art style. Eva Hesse (1936-1970 ). Tate Gallery, London, UK.

Hesse made drawings throughout her career. During 1964–1965 she was based in Germany as the guest of a textile manufacturer and collector who provided her with a studio space above his textile factory. Many of her drawings from this period, including this one, combine imagery which is principally abstract and organic with details that suggest machine parts and elements drawn from the factory environment.
