I'm sure it's been asked before, but it still haunts me. The "cowboy" dressed all in white. Who is it? I just can't figure it out.

Joe has an article on the Pepper cover including an early list of those The Beatles wanted on the cover, maybe there is something in there as well.

Sorry Strawberry have been around the net & in the Anthlogy book and the only place i can find which even has a pic of the mysterious cowboy is this site which has 2 colour pics which include the cowboy however his face is obscured by a light. He's wearing a kind of  caramel colour suit (lighter shirt, darker trousers).

 

Someone must know who this guy is.

The 'mysterious cowboy' is actually a sculpture by Jann Haworth, the American  first wife of Peter Blake who collaborated with him on the cover design for Sgt Pepper. It was made from calico - unbleached cotton, and was created in 1964. It is now in the collection of Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, UK (web: http://www.pallant.org.uk) which has one of the best collections of British Pop Art.

This summer the museum will be hosting a major exhibition 'Peter Blake and Pop Music' for the artist's 80th birthday which will feature the original collage for the inner sleeve of Sgt Pepper, and other related artefacts including the Snow White figure, and some of the cut-outs from the line-up. The exhibition also features Blake's iconic painting 'The 1962 Beatles' as well as original cover designs for Paul Weller, Oasis, Band Aid, and the 2012 Brit Award.
