These early works reveal Hockney’s tussle with his own identity and homosexuality at a time when sexual acts between men were still illegal in the UK. Lyrics, idioms and stanzas are shrewdly woven into the images, inspired by the homoerotic poetry of Whitman, Michelangelo and Greek writer C.P. Cavafy. In one example Hockney emblazons the etching plate with the defiant words ‘queer’ and ‘queen’. Hockney also turned to his openly gay friend Mark Berger as the subject for several prints showing the young artist being rescued by a male lover from a vagina dentata and then threatened by a giant phallic snake.
