A beautiful, extremely rare and eye-catching David Hockney print, typical of Hockney's intimate 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.
David Hockney and Richard Hamilton were good friends, taking part in protests against the proposed museum admission charges in London in the same year that this portrait was produced. The last photo opposite is Richard Hamilton photographed by Wolfgang Tillmans.
