We are a popular contemporary art boutique specializing in expertly chosen, blue chip prints, multiples, uniques, books, ephemera and merchandise at different price points, with a focus on the secondary market. Over the years, we have built a loyal following on Artsy, Artnet, 1stDibs and Artspace - but we have been selling fine art online before all of them. For the privacy of our clients and for ease in viewing, we typically unpublish works after they have sold - and we do not share sold prices.

This vintage photograph - a loving, nostalgic valentine to the artist's parents, is from Hockney's Twenty Photographic Pictures portfolio, and was acquired from the private collection of the legendary dealer Ileana Sonnabend, who published the portfolio. It is an ink signed 28/80. The image is of Hockney's parents - one of the artist's favorite subjects.
Hockney had an interesting relationship with photography- both using it as a tool and simultaneously subverting and pushing the boundaries of the medium. This work, which is from the portfolio "Twenty Photographic Pictures, 1976" recalls some of Hockney's most iconic and sexiest pop paintings.
