David Hockney. Myself and my Heroes

17 August 2007 to 6 January 2008
in the Janssen-Kabinett

extended until 20 January 2008

 


To mark David Hockney’s 70th birthday, the Kupferstichkabinett is showing a selection of his prints and drawings plus several works on loan from private collections. In the 1960s, Hockney started working intensively with lithography, frequently incorporating details and ideas from the works of other artists. His first major series of etchings, “A Rake’s Progress”, interprets paintings and the series of the same name by William Hogarth, but sets the moralising story in 1960s New York and studs it with autobiographical references. In “Illustrations for Fourteen Poems from C. P. Cavafy”(1966/67) he traces the footsteps of the Greek author Konstantinos Kavafis (1863-1933).
