Celebrates Hockney's long and fruitful career as a printmaker, sixty years after he made his first print Features over 150 works; published to accompany an exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London In 1954, a sixteen-year-old student at the Bradford College of Art opted to study lithography as part of the National Diploma in Design. His first effort, a small self-portrait printed only in a handful of impressions, marks the beginning of one of the longest and most diverse careers in modern printmaking. By turns traditional and ground-breaking, over six decades David Hockney has created graphic works of great wit, beauty and intellectual complexity. 'Hockney, Printmaker' features over 150 works, from etchings executed at the Royal College of Art in the 1960s, to experiments with printed computer drawings some fifty years later, via portraits, pools, poetry, Xeroxes and investigations into multi-point perspective. Written by Richard Lloyd, head of prints at Christies, with contributions from Hockney's friends and associates, it explores the many achievements of Britain's greatest living practitioner of the graphic arts. The Hockney, Printmaker exhibition will be held at Dulwich Picture Gallery, London from 5th February -11th May, 2014.
