Lecture: 'David Hockney - The Old Master of the Modern World' by Douglas Skeggs (St James)

| St James

From the early sixties, when he left the Royal College of Art more famous than his teachers, Hockney's paintings have shown a charm and humour that sets them apart from others of his generation. A naturally gifted draftsman, his love of ingenious visual devices has led him to experiment with a whole range of techniques, from stage design to coloured paper making. From the early abstract expressionist images, through his famous Californian scenes of swimming pools to the photo-montages of mid-eighties, this lecture follows the career of an artist whose wit and imagination has never faltered.
