Meet Hilda, the bull's missus

YOU'VE met the bull, memorably featured in one of my Minimal Art masterpieces. Now meet his wife - or, to be precise, one of his many wives.

Having produced my picture BULL in 15 lines, I felt under pressure to create his female counterpart with comparable economy. Hence, Cow in Blue, featured here.

The challenge was to produce a bovine image with none of the imperious menace of the bull, suggesting instead the more benign presence of his missus.

Anyway, here she is. Her name is Hilda.
