TP portrait of Townshend
TP portrait of Townshend

The Who commissioned Peter Blake to design a cover for their ninth studio album. Rather than create a single piece of art, Blake gathered fifteen other artists to work with him in producing portraits of each member of the group. Phillips's portrait of Pete Townshend is the second one on the top row.

The complete artist list (left to right, top to bottom) is as follows: Bill Jacklin, Tom Phillips, Colin Self, Richard Hamilton, Michael Andrews, Allen Jones, David Inshaw, David Hockney, Clive Barker, R.B. Kitaj, Howard Hodgkin, Patrick Caulfield, Peter Blake, Joe Tilson, Patrick Procktor and David Tindle. JC
