Scottish Arts Council 119. Signed, dated and numbered 42/50 and titled. On firm wove paper. 99,2 x 94,8 cm (39 x 37,3 in), the full sheet
Printed by Ernest Donagh at Cook Hammond & Kell, London. Released by the Petersburg Press, London 1971 (with copyright blindstamp).

David Hockney, a founding father of Pop-Art and one of the most important artists of our time, was occupied with questions regarding realistic depictions as of 1960. In the early 1970s the artist spent many hours in his London studio working on detailed illustrations of plants and fruit. In these mellow and yet strong works the object and the drawing merge and unfold a graphic effect that entirely does without spatial depth. [NB]
