Graphics by David Hockney at Contemporary Art & Design

By on October 25, 2019

In the upcoming auction of Contemporary Art & Design we can present a graphic department with several works by David Hockney. The legendary artist has achieved cult status and was most recently up to date with a solo exhibition at Tate Britain and Center Pompidou in 2017.

In November 2018, his “Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures)” from 1972 was sold for $ 90.3 million, was making him the first living artist to blow the billion-dollar limit.

Although his painting is sought after, this artist should not underestimate the graphic which is a universe of motifs and techniques.

Already during his teens he created lithographs, but it was when he was a student at The Royal College of Art between 1959 and 1962 that he really discovered and developed a number of techniques in the graphic field.

During his artistic career he has refined, researched and developed a number of graphical techniques – everything from classic copperplate etchings to graphics on Ipads.

The engravings that will be sold at this fall’s auction are made in the late 60’s and early 1970’s.

We are now looking for more graphic works by David Hockney to further complement the department to really show the breadth of his graphic art.
