Throughout the 1960s, regulars at The Sea Catch, a fish and chip shop in Bradford, England, would have been familiar with this lithograph above the deep-fat fryer. But they may not have known that it was an original work by one of the country’s greatest living artists.
The placement of the 1954 work by David Hockney, aptly titled Fish and Chip Shop, would have raised alarm bells among art collectors — had they been aware of its existence. The piece was gifted by the artist in the 1950s to the shop’s proprietors and has never been sold at auction or displayed in a gallery – until now!
David Hockney (b. 1937), Fish and Chip Shop, 1954. Estimate: £6,000–8,000.
Prints & Multiples – 29 March 2017 at Christie’s London, King Street.
