Original exhibition poster for David Hockney at Artcurial, Paris, 1979. Signed by the artist lower right in pencil.

This poster is reproduced from the Hockney lithograph Gregory Evans, and printed on fine Creysse paper. Hockney’s keen eye and uncanny ability to capture his subjects’ individuality is evident in this early portrait of Gregory Evans. Hockney’s longtime friend, one-time manager, and former lover, Evans has served as a longtime model and inspiration to the artist for over 40 years.
