Original lithographic poster.

Printed by Petersburg Press, USA.

Published to promote the New York Metropolitan Opera's production of a Stravinsky triple bill of The Rite of Spring, The Nightingale, and Oedipus Rex, with sets and costumes designed by Hockney.

"What I liked about the program of The Rite of Spring, The Nightingale, and Oedipus Rex at the Metropolitan Opera was how you went from Stravinsky's most kinetic to his most static work for the stage--seemingly from birth and awareness to self-knowledge and death. We conceived it as one total piece of theater..." -David Hockney, on his designs for the 1981 New York Metropolitan Opera's Stravinsky production.
David Hockney PortraitHockney was born in Bradford in 1937. He was a brilliant draughtsman, the best known painter of his generation, and gained international success in his mid-20s. Hockney attended Bradford School of Art and Royal College of Art, where he was awarded a Gold Medal for Etching. Having settled in Los Angeles he held various teaching posts in America and was Slade Professor of Fine Art , Cambridge University, 1990.

Hockney’s work is held in galleries internationally and he has had a continuous stream of one-man shows around the world. Notable works for the printed page are his illustrations for Cavafy’s Poems, 1967, and Six Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, 1969. He was elected RA in 1991 and was made Companion of Honour in 1997.
