'Chrissie and I first met Kate in Paris at a Stella McCartney show, and after the party she and Jefferson Hack invited us to come back to their hotel. She was staying at the Ritz. We drank a lot, stayed half the night, and became friends. We became family friends on one level.
Within the terms of her work as a model, I think her special quality has to do with her face. If you saw her on Oxford Street, among a crowd of girls, you might not notice her; but suddenly, when she is photographed, there is this very special appeal. She photographs extraordinarily well.' Sir Peter Blake

For this work, Blake has brought modern technology to bear within his long-favoured medium of collage. The tear-sheets were borrowed from Kate Moss, scanned, cut to shape on screen, scaled up or down electronically as necessary to construct the pre-visualised collage, with the images in appropriate proportions. The work offered here is the artist's desired end-product from the process. This is a unique work presented for sale, and in addition there is one artist's proof.
