This work is a popular limited edition lithograph on newsprint that Hockney made to raise money for the town of Bradford. What makes it especially valuable and historic is that signed the work twice and personally dedicated it to the famed dealer Charles Cowles, as well as his friend Joe. Hockney inscribed the work with the word LOVE and drew lines around the word to emphasize it ! The work is unframed, but is accompanied by the original Charles Cowles Gallery label.
