David Hockney


David Hockney (b.1937) is one of the most influential contributors to European Pop Art and one of the most valuable, versatile and distinctive British artists of the 20th century. 

The artist came to prominence in the 1960’s with his depictions of quirky domestic scenes and queer relationships. 

Hockney is a master of many art mediums, having worked with photography, collage, drawing, painting, set design and printmaking.  His style has changed numerous times during his lengthy career, yet his work is always identifiable for a certain optimism and je ne sais quoi joy

This 1973 exhibition poster is an example of his talent as both an illustrator and a graphic artist. It features an elegant¬†image¬†of a glass vase holding six blue iris stems titled ‚ÄúStill Life With Book‚ÄĚ. It‚Äôs minimal beauty and striking colour palette makes this an excellent poster image to represent Hockney‚Äôs signature style.

Of course we love icons referencing other icons - here Hockney is tipping his hat to Gustave Flaubert, the 19th century French novelist known for elevating literary realism. 

The inclusion of the exhibition location, at the Andre Emmerich Gallery, is yet another avenue to explore. Emmerich was one of the leading and most influential post-war New York gallerists. He shaped the careers of numerous artists including Helen Frankenthaler, Jack Bush, Kenneth Noland and Anthony Caro to mention a few. 

David Hockney has exhibited internationally at prominent art institutions including the MoMA, the Royal Academy of Arts and the National Portrait Gallery.
