15.9″ x 17.7″ (40.5 x 45 cm), etching with aquatint, 1969, from an edition of 100

This etching is from Hockney’s Grimm’s Fairytale series. no.56/100, signed.

The Enchantress sits like an Italian Renaissance Madonna with the baby Rapunzel on her lap, in front of a landscape reminiscent of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Annunciation. Hockney’s unfailing instinct for placement and his restrained simplicity makes the composition beautifully harmonious, and focusses us on the evil intent on the face of the Enchantress, with her hooked nose, pointed chin and lank hair that hint at traditional images of witches.
