Vintage Hockney poster Celia Wearing Checkered Sleeves 1981 Chicago Art Fair

1981

About the Item

Printed by Petersburg Press for their exhibition of David Hockney prints and drawings at the 1981 Chicago Art Fair, this beautiful poster reproduces Hockney’s drawing Celia Wearing Checkered Sleeves, 1973. Fashion and textile designer Celia Birtwell stares dreamily ahead with her usual frothy spray of wavy hair. With hands crossed in her lap, she is frozen in a moment of introspective leisure. Shaded in vibrant spring green and cornflower blue, Hockney's subject achieves a pastel luminescence. Text reads: “David Hockney Prints and Drawings of Celia 1970-1980 Petersburg Press at the Chicago Art Fair 14-19 May 1981”. Poster measures 36 x 26 in. Hockney has been an avid portraitist throughout his career, drawing and painting subjects ranging from his mother and Celia Birtwell, his muse over many decades, to art dealer Larry Gagosian and artist John Baldessari. He often depicted his models seated relaxed in a chair, as is seen here. Condition: Light aging of the paper tone, a few small discolorations, slight corner wear, two corners creased, as documented.
