First-ever comprehensive exhibition of David Hockney’s pioneering early prints opens in London gallery
The first-ever exhibition of David Hockney’s complete early prints (1961-1964) will open at Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert in early February 2017. This exhibition is a collaboration between specialist post-war print dealer Lyndsey Ingram, whose new London gallery space opens later in 2017, and James Holland-Hibbert, an established dealer in modern and contemporary British paintings and Director of Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert. The exhibition includes an impression of every print David Hockney made from 1961, when he began working in this medium, to 1964, including works that have never been seen before. Highlights from the show include a complete A Rake's Progress series, as well as the rare, unique self-portrait ECR (1961) on loan from Tate, and In Memory of Cecchino Bracci (1962) which will be on loan from a private collection. To provide context for Hockney’s ground-breaking graphic work, the gallerists also aim to include some of Hockney’s paintings and drawings from this period in the show.
