Paints the Stage Poster by David Hockney


Artist: David Hockney

We have very few remaining of this utterly gorgeous poster and will not be able to get any more. Paints the Stage is one of our favourites not just because it's huge but also because it's purely Hockney: there is no typography, just the artist's own unmistakeable handwriting and his painting of his set for Ravel's L'Enfant et les Sortileges playing out on a stage - it's a detail from his The Garden with Singers, 1980.

This poster was created for the important Hockney Paints the Stage exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, London in 1985. It has all the excitement of the theatre and looks magnificent in any style of interior. 

Approximate dimensions: 101.6cm  x 143 cm

We have a number of beautiful posters relating to David's work for the opera; please search 'opera' to see them all. 

This is an authorised David Hockney poster. It's an original archive / vintage poster, printed in 1985, now collectible and in very short supply. Our stock of it is sold as new. Given its age the condition is very good.  Please hang away from direct sunlight to prevent fading. Our posters are delivered rolled in tubes.
