First edition, published by The St. Petersburg Press, London 1977 Etchings by David Hockney who was inspired by Wallace Stevens who was inspired by Pablo Picasso. In this beautiful book, Hockney’s etched illustrations accompany the poem that inspired them, The Man With The Blue Guitar by Wallace Stevens. “I read Wallace Steven’s poem in the Summer of 1976. The etchings themselves were not conceived as literal illustrations of the poem but as an interpretation of its themes in visual terms. Like the poem, they are all about transformations within art as well as the relation between reality and imagination, so these are pictures within pictures and different styles of representation juxtaposed and reflected and dissolved within the same frame” David Hockney 1977.
