Bob Peak
Groovy Lucille Ball, original painting for TV Guide cover

1967

$50,000

About

Bob Peak's Lucille Ball TV guide cover is a seminal work. It represents a style of art that summed up the "Mod" Era. Mod was a subculture that began in London and spread throughout the world. It's a Happening! Bob Peak "Does his own thing" in the late 1960s with the psychedelic look. Bold and graphic day-glow-like colors are displayed in this "Groovy" work by one of America's great post-war illustrators. It's the quintessence of the MOD Look. Lucille Ball's striking resemblance is captured in a triple portrait with twisting, curving and undulating flat patterns. It's set against a TV screen "Test Pattern" that doubles as a hallucinatory background. Bob Peak was the father of the American Movie Poster. Peak has worked on. West Side Story, Rollerball, Star Trek, Superman, Excalibur, Apocalypse Now, The Spy Who Loved Me. My Fair Lady, Camelot and Enter the Dragon.
