Pink Floyd

Catalogue No: PFLO005ST Artist(s): Pink Floyd Location: Putney, London Date: 1997 Era: The 1990's Edition: Storm Thorgerson AV40 Edition Print type: Giclée Print Paper type: Archival 310gsm cotton based rag paper

Alternative version of the image designed to advertise the Pink Floyd back catalogue in 1997 designed by Storm Thorgerson. This is very similar to the actual version used. Storm Thorgerson recalled 'We were asked to design a campaign image to advertise the back catalogue of Pink Floyd, well known popular music ensemble. Our resident black-frocked artiste, Finlay Cowan suggested humorously that we put Pink Floyd covers on the backs of female models. He laughed nervously, thinking that this was a bit on the obvious side. We decided to body paint the covers, rather than projection or compositing, which allows the contours to follow the attractive curves of the female models. In addition they would have course have to be unclothed, thus appealing to the testosterone levels. In order to display their backs more gracefully, they needed to sit somewhere, and the edge of a swimming pool seemed very natural. The poses adopted by the girls seemed equally natural. The finished artwork was used mainly as a poster, the alternate version you see here showed one of them slipping into the pool for a quick bathe. It is otherwise very similar to the published piece.'

This is a limited edition of 40 prints. This print is signed by Storm Thorgerson

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK & the rest of the European Union (EU). On our website prices that include the cost of VAT read 'Price inc VAT'

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the EU eg USA, Canada, Japan, Austrailia etc do not have VAT charged to them. So in these cases the price charged will be the one that reads 'Price ex VAT'.

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.
