Summary

Hamilton made his first etchings and drypoints as a student in the late 1930s. Throughout the following decade he continued to use etching, drypoint and aquatint and experimented with lithography, but it was the influential screenprints incorporating photographic and hand-drawn stencils made in the 1960s which brought him international acclaim as a printmaker. The use of photography has long been an integral part of Hamilton’s working process. Bathers was taken from a regular 35mm negative. The work was printed by Edition Domberger, Stuttgart and published by the artist in an edition of 75.
