David Hockney: The Complete Early Etchings 1961-64

David Hockney complete etchings

The first-ever exhibition of David Hockney’s complete early prints (1961-1964). The exhibition includes an impression of every print David Hockney made from 1961, when he began working in this medium, to 1964, including works that have never been seen before. The exhibition focuses on the years 1961–1964. This period represents a formative moment in Hockney’s life as a young artist; it spans part of his time at the Royal College of Art (where he was a student from 1959-1962), his first years as an independent artist in London and a period in which his printmaking was solely focused on etching. They encompass his student years, his first prints, his ambivalent response to Pop Art, his first visit to the United States as well as the creation of his renowned A Rake’s Progress series of etchings on his return. The entire Rake’s Progress series will be on display.
