Lot description

Coloured flowers made of paper and ink. 1971.
Lithograph in colours.
Scottish Arts Council 119. Signed, dated and numbered 42/50 and titled. On firm wove paper. 99,5 : 95 cm (39,1 : 37,4 in), the full sheet. David Hockney, one of the founding fathers of Pop-Art and also one of the most important contemporary artists, has been dealing with the question of realistic depictions since the 1960s. As of the early 1970s, the artist spends a lot of time in his London studio creating depictions of plants and fruits with a great love for the detail . Object and drawing form a unit in these works that are delicate and powerful at the same time, thus unfolding their graphic effect, which does entirely without spatial depths. [NB]

Printed by Ernest Donagh at Cook Hammond & Kell, London. Published by the Petersburg Press, London 1971 (with the copyright blindstamp)
Colours slightly faded. Paper slightly discoloured and faintly sunned. With a tiny pressure mark in the lower margin and with few barely noticeable glue stains. Lower left corner slightly wavy.
