Baba The Turk Poster by David Hockney


Celebrating the original David Hockney designs from the 1975 Glyndebourne production of The Rake's Progress.

Inspired by an original recording conducted by Igor Stravinsky and William Hogarth's series of eight paintings and engravings of the same name, Hockney began designing the set and costumes for the Glyndebourne production of The Rake's Progress. Through his designs and the use of his now iconic cross-hatched etchings, he wanted to create a 20th century equivalent to Hogarth and Stravinsky's 18th century idea.

The Baba the Turk poster was used on stage during the production and held up by Nick Shadow in Act 2.
