david-hockney

2017 will see the largest Hockney retrospective to date which will kick off at Tate Britain (9 Feb – 29 May 2017) before heading off to Paris and New York.

The exhibition will pull together an extensive selection of David Hockney’s most famous works celebrating his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video across six decades.

As an artist, Hockney is far from static and continues to evolve embracing new technologies like the iPad for some of his drawings. The exhibition includes portraits and images of Los Angeles swimming pools as well as his drawings and photography, Yorkshire landscapes and his most recent paintings. A once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these unforgettable works together.

In related news, the SUMO-sized monograph David Hockney A Bigger Book from Taschen surveys more than 60 years of work, from Hockney’s teenage days at the Bradford School of Art, through his breakthrough in 1960s Swinging London, life by Los Angeles pools in the 1970s, as well as his recent series of portraits, iPad drawings, and Yorkshire landscapes.
