I may be going out on a limb if I describe the work of David Hockney as being some of the most beautiful work done in this postmodern world, but there it is. The Metropolitain Museum is running David Hockney from November 27, 2017 to February 25, 2018 at the Met Fifth Avenue.
The show includes work from every period of the artist’s life and includes painting, drawing, photography and video. Over almost six decades Hockney flirted with a number of different artistic schools including experiment s in modern abstraction, illusion, realism and his most recent bright palette work. Examples of these, including the swimming pool pictures are all represented. Along with his brilliant landscapes there is also a wide selection of his single and multiple figure portraits, as well as work done on an iPad.
