Three American icons: the stars and stripes, Elvis Presley and Coca Cola are combined to create American Trilogy, a classic pop art image by Sir Peter Blake. There are three versions of this silkscreen print; all feature embossing and hand-applied gold or silver leaf, and two are finished with diamond dust. This repetition of imagery with a slight variation on colour and surface texture is reminiscent of the work of Andy Warhol, and serves the double purpose of reflecting the endless ‘sameness’ of mass production and rooting American Trilogy deep in the Pop Art tradition.
