Donald Cribb is a signed lithographic print by David Hockney portraying Donald Cribb, the founder of Santa Ana Artists Village, at three-quarter view. This print was released in 1971 in an edition size of 59. Thanks to Hockney’s mastery of lithography as a printmaking technique, the right side of the model’s face retains a sublime glow, perhaps a reflection of the sun rays leaking into the surrounding space. Cribb’s facial expression, hovering between earnest and thoughtful, represents a moment of deep focus. Although it may initially appear contrary, the sitter’s eyes do not meet the viewer’s gaze, reaching slightly above the eye-level. This subtle detail leaves the viewer curious about what has drawn Hockney to portraiture most throughout his fifty-year career: the rich complexity of the inner life and personality of the human subject.
Cribb, a lifelong friend of Hockney, saw potential in Santa Ana, a small California town, and moved there from New York, driven by the idea of integrating arts, culture, and culinary activities in a single creative space. After producing this lithograph print, Hockney did not portray Cribb again until he embarked on 82 Portraits And One Still-life in 2015. Considered in the light of the more recent acrylic portrait, in which Cribb appears in his seventies, reclining on a chair with white hair discernible from the distance, the 1971 print exemplifies Hockney’s unique ability to record his friends’ passage through time.
