DAVID HOCKNEY "EXCELSIOR" 1973
David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most influential British artists of the twentieth century and is arguably the most important European contributor to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s.
Beginning in 1970 and continuing until the early 80's Hockney experimented and produced a wide body of photo-based work including his highly innovative photo-collages, called "Joiners".
Many of his photo explorations informed and influenced his paintings, drawings and prints.
"Excelsior" from circa 1973 is a paradigm of his fascination with California's culture, climate and sun worship.
This pristine beach is presented as an Arcadia that formally mirrors some of his most iconic California landscapes or backyard pools.
