One of a series entitled “Friends”, this portrait of the artist Mo McDermott features the artist sitting on a chair in profile. McDermott was a close friend of Hockney, and is known for his whimsical wood cut-out sculptures of plants and animals. Here the subject appears wistful as he gazes forward and slightly down. While the rest of his body is loosely defined with few lines, McDermott’s hands and face are carefully drawn.

Copies of this print are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., and Minneapolis Museum of Art, Minneapolis

The fifth of six children his parents encouraged his artistic experimentation. He went to the Bradford College of Art 1953-57. To fulfil his national service, he worked in hospitals as he was a conscientious objector to war. Then in 1959 he was accepted into the Royal College of Art, Graduate school in London.
