Signed and titled screenprint, from the Portraits Portfolio.

Printer's proof aside from the main edition of 36.

The Portraits Portfolio, printed in 1997, comprised of a set of 10 screenprints, based on a selected group of Hume's portrait paintings.

Angel was loosely based on a photograph from a fashion magazine.
Gary Hume portrait PortraitGary Stewart Hume RA (born 9 May 1962) is an English artist. Hume's work is strongly identified with the YBA who came to prominence in the early 1990s. Hume lives and works in London and Accord, New York.Hume was born in Tenterden, Kent. He attended Homewood School. He graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1988. His work was included in both Freeze, an exhibition organised by Damien Hirst in 1988, and East Country Yard, a warehouse exhibition organised by Henry Bond and Sarah Lucas in 1990. Hume has become known for depicting everyday subjects using high-gloss industrial paints. His earliest notable works are his "door paintings", life-size representations of hospital doors. These proved a critical success, being shown in Germany and the United States, as well as attracting the attention of collector Charles Saatchi. Hume's work was included in the 1995 exhibition Brilliant!, a showcase of work by YBA artists. In 1997, his work was included in Sensation, a touring show of the Charles Saatchi art collection at the Royal Academy, London. Hume abandoned doors in the mid-1990s, turning to paintings in household gloss paint on aluminium panel, for these often used appropriated images, including pictures of celebrities and animals. Their forms and colours are dramatically simplified, with people being reduced to just two or three colours. At first, Hume used mainly bright colours, but later pieces have used more muted tones.
