Inspired by Wallace Stevens’ poem “The Man with the Blue Guitar,” which
was inspired by Picasso’s The Old Guitarist, David Hockney created a
set of 20 color etchings, for The Blue Guitar, to interpret the themes
of the poem.
Paper Pools shows a series of work created by Hockney using a
technique of creating an image in colored paper pulps. This series is
the only time he used this technique, which allowed him to explore the
refraction of light through the gently moving water. Both of these books
are signed by the artist.
