This frameable book plate is of an opera production poster created for an early 1990s Japanese touring art exhibit. The main image is of a ship, one of the stage designs for Richard Wagner's iconic 1850 opera Tristan und Isolde which were created by renowned British artist David Hockney.

David Hockney is a visionary whose widely-celebrated work has made him one of the most influential British artists of the twentieth century. In addition to being a founder of the Pop Art movement, he is also a legendary stage and costume designer, having transformed his ideas for many operas into awe-inspiring sets with magnificent lighting since the 1960s. The intriguing image in the poster is an acrylic on canvas model of the ship Hockney designed for Act I of Richard Wagner's opera which tells the tale of the passionate but doomed love of Tristan and Isolde, an adulterous couple.

This book plate is from a high quality collection of art posters that was printed in Italy. You will receive the actual plate from the book, not a copy, not the original poster, nor the original artwork. There is only one image on the plate, and the reverse is blank so there won't be any bleed through.

This Hockney book plate will look great framed and as part of a grouping with similarly colored, sized or themed prints. Here are the artwork prints currently listed ... www.etsy.com/shop/AngelGrace?section_id=8092048.


This print is smaller than the original poster.
Entire page, including white margins, measures... 14.125" x approx. 10.25"
Featured art image only, without white margins, measures...9.125" X 12.875".

Condition ...
This book plate is in excellent condition, possibly with very light tanning on the three outside edges. The edges can easily be hidden when framed by using a mat or possibly with a frame alone.

About the Artist ...
World-renowned artist David Hockney was born in Bradford, Yorkshire in 1937. He knew he wanted to be an artist by the time he was ten and subsequently studied at Bradford College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London where he received a Gold Medal upon graduating in 1962.

Throughout the 1960’s, Hockney's art career grew exponentially. Absorbed in his work, he forged new ideas about seeing the world by intensely exploring a variety of forms. Working in almost every medium (painting, drawing, stage design, photography, and printmaking), he stretched the boundaries of all of them...from new ways of representing perspective and his use of brilliant colors, to his vivid multi-dimensional photo collages and fax art, computer printings and colored laser prints. By constantly questioning, seeking, and taking nothing for granted, he has opened new horizons on how we perceive the world and how art can alter our vision.

As an important contributor to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the twentieth century. Best-known for his 1960s series featuring Los Angeles swimming pools and their denizens, Hockney paints his pop culture subject matter in a bright and deliberately naive style of drawing. In his first mature works of the 1950s, Hockney painted narratives, often unabashedly featuring gay themes, in an expressionistic almost childlike manner. Moving to California inspired him to produce the simplified archaic forms in bright California colors for which he is now best known. Now based in Yorkshire & London, England, the world's most prestigious galleries continue to celebrate his extraordinary work through solo exhibits each year.

Frequently asked questions about AngelGrace

The best way to determine which belt size you wear is to measure a current belt that fits you well. The next best way to determine your correct size is to run a tape measure through your belt loops while wearing the pants. Please refer to the detailed instructions that are in all belt listings.
You are welcome to return the belt in exchange for a new size or return for a refund. It's quicker for you to get the new size and easier on my bookkeeping if you place a new, separate order for the new size.

When the belt/s are returned to me (convo me for my address), I will issue a refund (less shipping costs) when it's received back in its original, unused, undamaged condition with the belt keeper/loop still attached--I can't re-sell if this little piece is lost.

Please Note: Buyers are responsible for all return shipping costs. In the event an exchange is made without placing a 2nd order, buyers must pay the postage costs to receive the new belts. I regret that I cannot offer free shipping to send out new belts.
