Healing Art Appeal To Support The NHS

In these unprecedented times the art community, like every other, has suffered enormous disruption and uncertainty. Finding a balance between compassion for the most vulnerable in society and facing the pressures of maintaining our businesses is not easy.

In seeking to address both pressures we have formed a partnership with the Maudsley Trust who are running an emergency fundraising campaign for the NHS. By offering a substantial discount of between 10-30% off selected works, we are asking our clients to donate 10% of the final saving to the NHS.

Why Maudsley Charity NHS Mental Health Appeal?

There are many fundraising initiatives operating at the moment around COVID-19. The mental health impact surrounding COVID-19 is already growing into a national crisis. Whether it is single parents struggling to home-school whilst paying the bills, business owners facing bankruptcy, or family members suffering the loss of loved ones in isolation, this crisis will be played out in a myriad of ways.

Hockney - The Blue Guitar (and Picasso)

Hockney first encountered Picasso's work on a visit to London as an art student in 1954, and when an important Picasso show was mounted at the Tate in 1960, Hockney, then a student at the Royal Academy of Art, visited the exhibition eight times. Yet in spite of this early enthusiasm it was not until the 1970s that the first pictorial references to the Spanish master started to appear in his paintings and prints.

When Picasso died in 1973 Hockney was invited to contribute a print to the portfolio Homage to Picasso. Deciding to make an etching he went to the studio of Aldo Crommelynck, Picasso's master printer, in Paris. It was under Crommelynck's tutelage that Hockney learnt about the sugar lift aquatint, a method used extensively by Picasso, as well as colour etching techniques which he would use later in The Blue Guitar to great effect.

Having long intended to experiment with Cubism, it was the discovery in 1976 of a poem inspired by Picasso's painting The Old Guitarist (1930) by the American poet Wallace Stevens which would lead to Hockney's great early homage to the Spanish master's art, The Blue Guitar. 

'I read Wallace Steven's poem in the summer of 1976. The etchings themselves were not conceived as literal illustrations of the poem but as an interpretation of its themes in visual terms. Like the poem, they are about transformations within art as well as the relation between reality and the imagination, so these are pictures and different styles of representation juxtaposed and reflected and dissolved within the same frame.' (Artist's statement on dustjacket of the catalogue documenting the publication of The Blue Guitar portfolio of etchings, Petersburg Press, London and New York, 1977).

In The Blue Guitar Hockney began a dialogue with the language of cubism which would inform much of his work throughout the 1980's.
