Footnotes

  • It was appropriate that the printer chosen for the "Hommage a Picasso" portfolio was Aldo Crommelynck, who succeeded Lacouriere to become Picasso's printer. Together they developed various new techniques, notably the sugarlift aquatint and a simplified method of colour printing, both of which offered new possibilities to an artist who had mastered all the traditional techniques available to him. As Picasso was the artist to whom Hockney most credited his artistic formation, it was fitting that he should work with Crommelynck, who as he was to do with Picasso, enabled Hockney to master new tecnhiques that had previously been beyond his or his printers capabilities. In terms of printer/artist relationships, Hockney found his own Crommelynck in Ken Tyler.
