Louisiana poster featuring the work, Pool and Steps, (1971), by British artist David Hockney. Hockney is one of Britain's most influential artists of the 20th century and was central to the 60s pop art scene in London. Hockey is very well known among many visitors to Louisiana, where he has exhibited several times.
David Hockney is loved by many for his ability to touch the ordinary - that which the world mostly consists of. He likes to let it float a bit, so that we become involved, because Hockney both offers a motif and that we ourselves get involved in processing the scene.
Here we are back in 1964, when the then 27-year-old David Hockney moved from Great Britain to sunny California. The American west coast environment inspired him and he painted a large number of pictures of swimming pools with or without people, often kept in delicate pink, light blue or light green shades.
In 2007, Louisiana acquired David Hockney's giant painting A Closer Grand Canyon (1998), consisting of 60 smaller canvases assembled into one large picture – a work which has since become an absolute masterpiece in the collection.
Today, David Hockney lives in Normandy, where he constantly experiments with materials and captures local moods with his fantastic line and sure sense of color.
