XVI RIP ARLES (Theresa Russell) Poster by David Hockney
Showing the actress Theresa Russell nude on a pink satin sheet, this joiner - entitled Nude, 17th June 1984 - was used as a poster for the 1985 RIP Arles (Recontres Internationales de la Photographie, Arles /Arles photographic festival.)
On Gilded Birds: A Snapshot of Contemporary Ideals of Beauty, Mandi Lennard says of Hockney's image, '(It) literally hit me in the face. He’s taken its subject, Theresa Russell, to the point of ugliness where she looks incredibly beautiful, giving her strength and a raw vulnerability."
Approximate dimensions: 72.4 x 49.5 cm
