Lunchtime Lectures - Conversations with the past: Hockney and the Old Masters with Isabel Seligman
Ondaatje Wing Theatre, Floor -2
Plundering the history of art for its subjects, styles, solutions and techniques, David Hockney’s conversations with the art of the past have been lively and ongoing. From his early subversion of Hogarth’s moralising tale in A Rake’s Progress (1961–3) to his employment of the reed pen inspired by Vincent van Gogh, through the compositions, quotations and approaches of artists from Tiepolo to Toulouse-Lautrec, this talk will examine the impact of artists of the past on Hockney’s graphic portraits, in particular the work of Rembrandt, Ingres and Picasso.
