This is one of a group of works made in 1979 in which Hamilton used his own photographs, collaged and rendered in collotype, with painted additions rendered in screenprinting. In several of them, as particularly in this one, the subject is art in a domestic setting. The blue square represents an Yves Klein monochrome painting (see, for example, ‘IKB 79’ 1959 T01513).
