A wonderful example of David Hockney’s vibrant prints, Untitled for Joel Wachs refers to the president of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, who was previously an advocate for the arts during his tenure as a long-term member of the Los Angeles City Council. The work’s rich, bold colors and semi-abstract style can be seen as a result of the artist’s set designs for Puccini’s Turandot in 1991 at the Chicago Lyric Opera and Richard Strauss’ Die Frau ohne Schatten in 1992 at the Royal Opera House in London.
