Drawn from the British Council Collection, the exhibition presents four major suites of artists’ prints produced by David Hockney from 1961–1977. United by their reference to historical works of literature and art, these prints were produced during the first two decades of Hockney’s career when he established his international reputation as a Pop artist.
A selection of Hockney’s more personal works from the private collection of his brother John Hockney will accompany the exhibition.
Blue Mountains City Art Gallery is proud to present this major international exhibition in partnership with Tweed Regional Gallery. The exhibition will premiere at Tweed before travelling on to Katoomba.
