This drawing in charcoal by David Hockney is related to his major early painting Doll Boy 1960–1 (private collection, reproduced in Stangos, fig.18, p.49). The drawing shows a stylised figure, which has been placed on the right side of the page, leaving the left side empty. A geometrical shape, coloured a dense black, looms over it. The proportions of the figure are exaggerated: an outsized body with spindly limbs. A line of buttons adorns its bulky torso. The figure’s head leans awkwardly to the right, as if pushed by the weight of the black shape. Between the shape and the boy is the word ‘dollboy’. The word ‘Queen’ is inscribed along the base of the figure’s torso.
