David Hockney The Old Master of the Modern World, sponsored by Investec, held on Monday 1st March 2010 at St. James Concert & Assembly Hall, St. Peter Port, Guernsey.
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 the mid eighties.
Lecturer Douglas Skeggs, international lecturer on fine art, author, television presenter and artist of note, presented the long career of an artist whose wit and imagination has never faltered.
