David Hockney had always loved Grimms’ Fairy Tales. He admired interpretations created by Edmund Dulac and Arthur Rackham.
In 1969, he decided to create his own images and now, Trattles and Geall Fine Arts are proud to bring this suite of etchings to their small gallery in Whitby.
Hockney illustrates the magic and wonder of the Fairy Tales, the works are still ‘edgy’ and a little on the ‘dark side’.
All works are guaranteed authentic, extremely rare and considered by Hockney to be one of his major successes.
Trattles and Geall have also commissioned a very limited set of interpretations of Grimms Fairy Tales by a new artist John Bell. John’s work is digital, vibrant, and a whole new medium.
Opening night is on Saturday, 7pm to 11pm. The exhibit then remains open from Sunday, 10am to 5pm, to 30 November, closed Mondays. Entry is free. but donations for RNLI accepted.
