The Holburne Museum has reopened its doors after three years with a major focus on Sir Peter Blake.

For the first time, items from the artist's extensive personal collection are displayed alongside his own works.Known as the 'godfather of British Pop Art', Blake has been closely involved in pop culture for half a century. His cover for the Beatles' 1967 album Sergeant Pepper is one of the most enduring images from that decade.On display are sculptures and collages from throughout Blake's career, including the title work A Museum for Myself (1982), Elvis Shrine (2003) and his series of 'Museums of Black and White'.Items on show from Blake's personal collection include Victorian collage, pop ephemera and showbiz memorabilia. Look out for the marching troupes of toy elephants, General Tom Thumb's boots, a hare with antlers and Max Miller's shoes.
