David HOCKNEY Portrait of Richard Hamilton  (1971)
Original etching and aquatint on wove paper. Signed David Hockney bottom right, one of 11 artists proofs aside from the very small limited edition of 30. Richard Hamilton, Cadagues, 1971 inscribed into the plate lower left. Printed by Maurice Payne and published by Petersburg Press, London. Referenced in Scottish Arts Council, 118
In good condition with some damage in the plate/image that looks to be scuffing/ink, and occasional light marks. Right-hand side of the sheet has been torn rather than deckled, which will of course be covered by mounting/framing
A beautiful, extremely rare and eye-catching David Hockney print, typical of Hockney's portraits of the 1970s when he produced a number of prints of friends and relations in various formats experimenting with greater realism and natural perspective
