Portrait representing Yves-Marie Hervé
Oil painting on Isorel near 1974-1975
Signed at the bottom on the right.

This portrait was painted in Paris where David Hockney lived quietly at the beginning of the 70' years.
He met Yves-Marie Hervé and they became close friends. During this period, Hockney will pencil-draw a few portraits of Yves-Marie; he used to draw portraits of many friends who accepted to pose.
Hockney spent two to three days to draw the individuals in a rather academic way.
This portrait of Yves-Marie is to our knowledge the only one that David Hockney made at that time.
