“We have three outstanding David Hockney prints in the sale, one from 1962, an etching and aquatint entitled The Marriage, also a lithograph from 1965 called Picture of Melrose Avenue, and lastly a modern inkjet print of an ipad drawing of a red rose entitled no.281.

David Hockney 'The Marriage'

Ed Plackett, Prints and Multiples head of department, said: “David Hockney’s market is firmly on an upward curve and his work is the one to watch. These three prints show his exploration of the medium of printmaking with three different techniques and two of the three show his famed love of colour, while The Marriage shows his proficiency with an economical printed line. The print of the iPad drawing should be of interest to collectors of modern Hockney, a similar print of an iPad drawing in the last auction made £30,000 hammer against an estimate of £15,000-£20,000.”

The sale takes place on June 15.
