‘SOLD OUT - David Hockney’
A major double exhibition marks the return of David Hockney (1937) to the Centre for Fine Arts after almost thirty years. Even today, the British artist remains one of the most influential and inspiring artists in the world. In Works from the Tate Collection, 1954-2017 we go on a journey through Hockney’s entire career, with iconic images of the ‘swinging sixties’ in London, Southern California, his famous double portraits and vast landscapes.
“I haven't stopped painting or drawing - I've just added another medium.”
The second exhibition demonstrates Hockney’s hunger for experimentation. The Arrival of Spring, Normandy, 2020, presented in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, exhibits the colourful iPad paintings he created during the first lockdown. Hockney’s paintings have a timeless quality that continues to appeal to young and old alike. The now 83-year-old artist has reinvented himself once more with his most recent work.
