This vintage exhibition poster reproduces The Boy Hidden in an Egg by David Hockney from his Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm, 1969. A shirtless young man curls up inside a dark grey speckled egg, as a small bird looks on. The poster was produced in 1981 to commemorate Hockney’s 1970 exhibition at Galerie Der Spiegel, an adventurous and groundbreaking gallery of the period. The poster was designed by the artist in our studio and comes directly from our Petersburg Press archive. It is not pre-owned.
