David Hockney (November 27, 2017 – February 25, 2018)
David Hockney is a British born contemporary artist is known for his portraits, his friendship with Andy Warhol, and above all, his pools. All of these elements feature heavily in his exhibition at the Met, previously at the Tate Modern in London.
The exhibition chronicles the storied artists life, from the Royal College of Art to London and California. It begins in his abstract youth and moves through his evolution to pop art, mixed media, and sed design.
It is, in short, phenomenal. Hockney’s intimate portraits of married life and relationships bring you into the painting, and through subtle gestures and postures, space and light, the couples’ loves come alive.
