David Hockney: The Complete Early Etchings, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert, London

Complementing Tate’s show, this highlights the subversive manner, experimental energy and genius of the young Hockney. It includes an impression of every print he made from 1961 – 1964: the ‘Rakes Progress’, the rare self-portrait ‘ECR’, ‘In Memory of Cecchino Bracci’, loaned from a private collection. Final week.
