This small hardback book documents Prince’s “Free Love” paintings from 2016, and the exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ in which they were first shown.

For these paintings Prince collected a group of nudist cartoons by John Dempsey (1919-2002) - whose drawings were a staple of Playboy magazine for five decades - enlarged them into inkjet prints and drew “hippie drawings” over the appropriated images.

In these superimposed hippie drawings, Prince cites the Modernist titans who have recurred in his work – above all Willem de Kooning and Pablo Picasso. Vestiges of avant-garde painting are brought into collision with – or wrapped around – louche cartoons.
