The painting “On the Balcony” was written by Peter Blake in 1957. The figures on the garden bench show the viewer four canvases written by like-minded Blake. Around the diverse waste commercial products: packs of cigarettes, magazines, paper wrappers, packaging for food.
A simple arrangement of objects does not convey a spatial perspective, since the objects themselves are the main element of the composition. At one time, by direct impact on the viewer, this picture was considered the most significant work of Blake. And until now this confusing juxtaposition of popular images conveys a feeling typical of the culture of the 1950s. It was the image of commemorative objects of mass production that opened the way for British pop art.
