Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature at Van Gogh Museum Spring 2019 #ArtTuesday
I was lucky enough to spend an evening with some of Hockney’s work the last weekend it was on view at the MET and…wow. If you’re near Amsterdam March 1 – May 26 we really hope you get a chance to check out this exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum! From Van Gogh Museum via creative boom:
The major exhibition ‘Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature’ demonstrates the unmistakable influence that Vincent van Gogh had on the work of David Hockney (1937). On view from 1 March to 26 May 2019.
Visitors learn about both artists’ fascination with nature, their use of bright colours and their experimentation with perspective. Hockney’s monumental Yorkshire landscapes play a central role.
The exhibition Hockney – Van Gogh. The Joy of Nature features some 120 works, including highlights such as the imposing The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire (2011) from the Centre Pompidou collection, Hockney’s intimate sketchbooks and his iPad drawings. Photographer Rineke Dijkstra created a portrait of the artist, who is now 81 years old, especially for this exhibition.
