In addition to being the guest of honour at the opening of the Tate’s new summer show, Sir Peter Bake visited here at the gallery where we are showing his prints- ‘Love’ a portfolio of signed, limited edition, diamond dust prints created by the artist in 2004.
Blake, accompanied by his wife Chrissie, shared Newlyn crab sandwiches and a glass of wine with us, before taking a stroll around the harbour. Conversation focused on many subjects, Ian Dury, Alison Lapper and the future of fishing in Newlyn. ‘His visit was a real pleasure’ said Nickie ‘He was thoroughly entertaining company, full of witty, fascinating anecdotes, yet really a very modest, quietly spoken man”
