David HOCKNEY - Six Fairy Tales

Petersburg Press, London. 1970.
David Hockney. Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm with Original Etchings by David Hockney. Miniature

What makes Hockney’s visual interpretation especially enchanting is that while traditional fairy tale images tend to rely on beauty and color to create magic and contrast the beautiful and the ugly to distinguish between good and evil, even the princesses in his black-and-white illustrations are unassuming, ugly even; where ornate, detailed imagery would ordinarily fill the traditional visual vignette, Hockney’s ample use of negative space invites the imagination to roam freely.
