Museum of the Colour White 2, 2001 by Peter Blake art print
35.6 x 28 cm art print featuring the artwork Museum of the Colour White 2, 2001 by British artist Peter Blake from a private collection.
Blake has collected and classified all sorts of things over his long career; he has also acquired vintage display cases showing collections of things as various as screws, pipes, string, rope and pinned butterflies, set out in ordered patterns. The Museum of the Colour White series, begun in the year 2000 and ongoing, adopts the display-case configuration, to present objects from the artist’s own collection.
The series consists of about twenty such cases, some more than two metres in height, full of neatly ordered white objects, or objects which were once white: many are now worn, faded or rusted. There is also a Museum of the Colour Black series and a Museum of Black and White series.
