The work of one of the most influential artists to come out of the British Pop Art scene, is coming to San Francisco’s DeYoung Museum.
This Saturday, the museum will be opening David Hockney: a Bigger Exhibition. It marks a return to California, with works that are expansive in scope and monumental in scale, as well as a survey of the artist’s 21st century works. Featuring Hockney’s most prolific periods, the exhibition will be filled with selected monumental paintings, Photoshop portraits, digital films tracking the changing seasons, vivid landscapes created using an iPad, and charcoal drawings and painting never before exhibited. Among the works featured in the exhibition includes Self Portrait with Charlie, the 30-canvas re-working of Claude Lorrain’s the Sermon on the Mount, and Yosemite (the work created on an iPad).
A Bigger Exhibition builds on the recent success of an exhibition held at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, with encompasses of a larger scope, one that will also include works that will be the first to be exhibited by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (of which the DeYoung Museum is a part of). Patrons will also have an opportunity to purchase a catalogue book of the exhibition. David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition will be on view until January 20th. Deemed a special exhibition by DeYoung, tickets will start at $25 for adults, and will include general admission. Log on to deyoung.famsf.org for more information.
