Hockney, David

Signed and limited edition prints, artist proof prints and rare works by David Hockney including his portraits, joiners, and  The Blue Guitar Etchings.

Hockney rose to prominence in the Young Contemporaries exhibition held at the Royal College of Art in 1960, alongside Peter Blake. While the exhibition announced the arrival of British Pop Art, Hockney’s own work was more reminiscent of the expressionism found in Francis Bacon’s work. Hockney led the RCA to change their regulations on graduation requirements by refusing to write the required essay for examination.

Hockney has produced a vast body of work in a career spanning more than half a century, influencing to direction of contemporary art both in Britain and abroad. His work often deals with themes including the exploration of human vision, sexuality and perspective. Over time, he has used various mediums and movements to interpret these, such as portraits, Polaroid photography, etchings and most prolifically, painting.

Hockney’s work remains popular, and is regularly exhibited in collections around the world.
