Shading in bright turquoise above a Southwestern style thunderbird Kilim rug adorns this original exhibition poster for David Hockney’s 1969 show at Andre Emmerich, New York. This poster is based on Hockney’s 1969 colored pencil drawing entitled “Corbusier Chair and Rug.” Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, is considered a pioneer of modern architecture, and the clean lines of his eponymous armchair complement the organic geometry of the Kilim rug. This vintage poster was designed by the artist in our studio. and comes directly from our Petersburg Press archive. It is not previously owned.

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 an armchair, though here, the chair is empty, rich with the possibility of the next sitter.

Condition: excellent with a few soft dimples in the sheet
