Any exhibition that has even a trace of Hockney’s work in it is enough for most of us at It’s Nice That to be running down there in an instant, so hearing that London’s Dulwich Picture Gallery was opening a show of Hockney’s printed work was almost too exciting for our little brains to bear.
The show is a career-spanning glimpse into the art-machine that is David Hockney and has been organised to celebrate his 60th anniversary of printmaking. From lithography made during his salad days at school back in 1954 to his legendary and countless images of Celia Birtwell, this is truly a once in a lifetime treat for any Hockney fanatic. It truly reveals not only his pure, unadulterated skill in this craft, but also the sheer quantity and breadth of works he has made over the course of his career.
