Since the 1950s, David Hockney has been producing works that embrace an idiom of exuberance, while consistently pushing the envelope in terms of the potential for technology to uniquely engage, explore, and enable different modes of artistic expression. “I don’t think there are any borders when it comes to painting,” he once conceded. “I’ve always thought that. There are no frontiers, just art.”
First time to market — a selection of rare works by David Hockney, who has been described as the most popular and versatile British artist of the 20th century, producing works in media as diverse as painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography. Hockney stuck resolutely to figurative painting and drawing at a time when abstraction dominated the art world. His portraits are considered by many to be his finest work: grandly scaled, yet intimate. LAMA is pleased to offer twenty-one paintings, drawings, and prints by Hockney in its February 21, 2016 auction of Fine Art & Design.
