The first major series of etchings by Hockney since The Rake's Progress in 1963. "Hockney's largest painting of 1961 was inspired by the words of the Greek poet Cavafy. In 1966 the artist decided to illustrate a book of Cavafy's poems about homosexual love. He went to Beirut, which he felt was the modern equivalent of the writer's Alexandria, but few of his etchings refer to places or incidents in the poems. The translators and the artist together decided which print was to accompany each poem"--Castleman, 212;.
