Babe Rainbow

When Mimi was a child she walked passed Babe Rainbow more than twenty times a day. This print on tin hung in the stairway of her parental home. Mimi Sr threw it away at some point ” because it was all dented”. Babe Rainbow by Peter Blake
Babe Rainbow by Peter Blake, 1968.
‘Babe Rainbow, a fictitious lady wrestler, is the most recent in a line of wrestlers I have painted’, said Peter Blake. ‘These include Irish Lord X, Doktor K Tortur, Kamikaze and Les Orchidées Noires. She is twenty-three years old and has broken her nose in the ring. She was born in New Cross, London and wrestles mainly in Europe and the USA as there have only been a few contests between lady wrestlers in London. She is the daughter of the notorious Doktor K Tortur.’ (via V&A museum)robbie rainbowjpeg
(via pallantbookshop) Bobbie Rainbow is the fictional daughter of Babe Rainbow, Bobbie’s father is unknown, but she was born during 1976, when Babe was living and wrestling in New York (for a brief period in 1973 she was the world champion), and her most likely father is Ebony Superman, who was also world champion at that time. Bobbie is wearing the championship belts, and famous leather hat passed on to her by Babe, when she retired from the ring in 1989. She is currently wrestling in the U.S.A. and around the world. Bobbie bears an uncanny resemblance to her mother.
