16 Drawings With Moons In
’16 Drawings with Moons in’ is a group of drawings that were made in late 1986. In his early work the moon figured greatly in Hopkins drawings and sculpture. The group playfully uses lines from the songs of the ‘Graceland’ album by Paul Simon (also released in 1986, a few months before the drawings were made) and Dwight Yoakam (the country singer). They mention Saul Steinberg (the Romanian American cartoonist and illustrator) and Claus Oldenburg (the American artist). The group was shown at Leeds City Art Gallery in 1987 in an exhibition curated by Nigel Walsh, and have been in the collection of the artist since.

The drawings are priced individually but are also available as a group of sixteen at £2,400.
