Don Quijote y Dulcinea, 1993-4

Hand-coloured Lithographs
Unique Set

In this series of six lithographs a journey of union and separation is enacted, one which moves from imagination (1), through desire (2) and courtship by the mock-heroic suitor on a child’s hobbyhorse (3), into the light of requited love (4); the lover transformed in the beloved. However, the darkness of jealousy and possession emerges as Don Quijote rejects and glowers at his faithful squire, Sancho Panza (5). In the final image he is isolated again (6), sitting in the gloom, hugging his loneliness.
