In the mid-80s Blake started to re-examine his earlier work, exploring further ideas. Here he revisits an original piece from 1986, that itself was based on his The First Real Target? of 1961 (adapted for his silkscreen The First Real Print Target published in 2008). The concept of the target as subject matter was a result of the dialogue between Blake and Jasper Johns. Johns had made paintings of a target in 1960, prompting Blake to respond by equating the subject of the painting with its physical manifestation as an object. The First Real Target (enamel on canvas and collage on board support) was conceived in a spirit of both homage to, and competition with, Johns- taking the Americanâ€™s idea to a more radical level.
