The quotations in this print do not come from the fairytale of Snow White, but from two homoerotic poems by CP Cavafy, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and The Mirror at the Entrance. Homosexual love, and male beauty, are the primary inspiration for this print, however Hockney has also explained that 'making a mirror have feelings is a wonderful poetic idea that strongly appeals to me'.
