Iconic Sgt. Pepper Cover Reimagined by Rothacker

Enlarged detail of images on Rothacker painting
Iconic cover created as 5' x 5' painting in acrylic on canvas.

This work which features all of the original characters (and more) from the 1968 Grammy Winning cover produced for the “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band” album was created as a commission and is now available for sale by the owner.

The original cover art was stage using a variety of images (many of them as  Xerox copies) from photos or artwork available at the time. Reproduction was not especially good, and certain images were deleted in the final reproduction due to copyright infringements or directorial edits.

Basing his painting on the original intentions of the designers, George Rothacker researched the 60+ images used and, in many cases, adapted original art to meet the look and feel of the original cover art.

“My intention was not to merely ‘copy’ the cover  (which would be impossible because of the degraded images), but to assure that the images were of a quality consistent for a piece of art created 5 times the original size of the album cover (original size 12" x 12”).

Due to space restrictions, the owner is forced to make the painting available directly for purchase. Prospective buyers should call the artist at 1-610-220-9863, or email Mr. Rothacker at george@rothackeradv.com for further info including cost and shipping.

George Rothacker comments about this series...

Detail of initial stages of the 40" x 30" acrylic on
canvas painting of Alice Cooper.
“I have been painting for more than 45 years and have been operating an advertising/design firm for more than 38 of those years. I have learned in both activities that each ‘buyer’ has his or her own objective when considering a purchase: the desire for a piece may be “color” or “design;” it may be size, format or medium; or it may be just the “look” of the work, or the “name” of the artist producing the artwork. In most times “price” is a consideration as well as subject “subject matter.”
