Hockney, Printmaker FEBRUARY 2014

Exhibition opening at Dulwich Picture Gallery

Dulwich Picture Gallery was buzzing on 4th February at the opening of the Hockney, Printmaker exhibition, the first ever show of Hockney prints, which concentrates on his two main print techniques of etching and lithography. The Telegraph says of the show, ‘This joyous show of his 60-year printmaking career reminds us that… David Hockney has been one of Britain's great artists’, while ArtDesk describes it as ‘a joyous exhibition of Hockney’s brilliant adventures in print’.
