Red, Blue And Green Flowers

By David Hockney

Red, Blue & Green Flowers is a home made print in two parts, using two sheets of paper. Hockney was innovative in his printmaking and this is a prime example of using new technology, layering colours when he printed each layer individually to create the final print on an office colour copy machine.

He aimed to create 60 prints and whatever number were successfully created defined the edition size. His series of home made prints demonstrates another step in Hockney’s printmaking techniques which has led him to the current day with his iPad drawings.

Created in 1986, this print is published by Hockney in an edition of 59. Numbered, signed and dated by Hockney. It has been exhibited numerous times from London to New York and Tokyo.

Print measures 71.1 by 21.6cm

Framed. Overall frame measures 89 x 39.7 cm.

Hockney would send prints of illustrated flowers to his loved ones and this picked up momentum when he got an iPhone and sent drawings of flowers to his friends and family on a daily basis.
