date : 2006
size : 33” x 23½”
medium : oil.
notes : Second in the series of matchbox paintings, here Jones uses his painting skills to good effect, reproducing his version of the England's Glory design in oil paint. Another classic piece of Pop Art from the growing Jones repetoire.
comment : “Title was inspired by Jon Savage's excellent book by the same title. I think that Peter Blake did a version of the old design in the early 1960s, which was a more primitive version, and not full colour. I took four days to draw this, and over a month to actually paint it”.
