Spring arrives in London in vivid colours and fifty perfect shades of grey.
Hockney, one of the greatest colourists since Matisse, has been working exclusively in black and white. Twenty five drawings charting “The Arrival of Spring 2013” were on show at the Annely Juda gallery in London. Spring arrived in fifty perfect shades of grey.
Early this month I spent a morning looking at what I call my silent mentor’s work. For the second time I visited the show and once again enjoyed Hockney's sublime drawings. It’s a delight to see his pictures and it’s thrilling to learn so much from looking at his works firsthand.
Happy birthday Mr Hockney (early July) and wishing you another inspirational year ahead.
