Alongside paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations, it is particularly his prints that exhibit immense aesthetic potential and also have a subversive effect, as demonstrated by the still-life-like presentation of pills, syringes and dried butterflies. In his assemblage ''Fun'', Hirst succeeds in expressing the vanitas idea in a contemporary language for a young audience by using contemporary creative means.

In good condition.
