David Hockney, Hotel Acatlán: First Day

Sotheby’s upcoming auction of Prints & Multiples will feature important work by noteworthy artists of the past 150 years.

Sotheby’s upcoming auction of Prints & Multiples will feature important work by noteworthy artists of the past 150 years. Highlights include: Flags I Jasper Johns’ richly layered 1973 screenprint, presenting an iconic image within the artist’s oeuvre in its most striking graphic form; a monumental screenprint on linen, Océanie, la mer, Henri Matisse’s largest scale editioned piece and a brilliant example of his use of “cut-outs”; Andy Warhol’s beloved Flowers, a powerful wall of color that is his 1970 portfolio of 10; and Baby Charles Looking Over His Mother's Shoulder (No. 2), Mary Cassatt’s unique pastel counterproof, portraying the artist’s extraordinary ability to capture maternal love.

Hotel Acatlán: First Day presents a brightly colored, panoramic view of the courtyard of the Hotel Romano Angeles in Acatlán, Mexico. Hockney’s stay at this hotel in 1984 was purely accidental. The artist’s car broke down while he was traveling to the opening of his exhibition at the Museo Rufino Tamayo. This, and a subsequent stay at the hotel later that year with the printer Kenneth Tyler, resulted in six lithographs, one etching and a painting of the hotel’s courtyard.” –Chanler Rutherfurd.

David Hockney, Hotel Acatlán: First Day (Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo 269). Estimate $30,000–50,000 on Sotheby's Prints & Multiples Auction, 26–27 April in New York.
