Event description

Description

Join me for an enlightening tour of the upcoming David Hockney retrospective at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. At the age of 80, Hockney continues to be considered one of the most influential and iconic living artists.

As a graduate of the prestigious master's program at Christie's Education, I completed my Master's Thesis on some of Hockney's most important paintings from the late 1950s and the 1960s. I have continued to follow Hockney's artistic evolution, including his use of technology in recent years. I also routinely give tours of NYC galleries and museums.

I will guide your visit to this massive retrospective, focusing on and discussing salient works but always briefing you on the factors that likely influenced those works: from the artist's personal life and circumstances to external artistic influences to the artist's own curiosity and experimentation with subject-matter and style. We will cover works from Hockney's formative years at London's Royal College of Art to those about LA both before and after he made LA his home and all the way to the innovative works he has created using contemporary technology. I will share detailed anecdotes and aspects of Hockney's work and life that you are unlikely to get from an audioguide. Additionally, my tour brings together no more than 10 individuals in order to maximize interaction and learning.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience this Hockney exhibition with the help of someone who can provide you with great insight on the artist and their work.

Your admission to the museum is included with the price for this tour. There is no need for you to purchase a museum admission ticket. We will meet inside the main lobby of the Met. I will be sure to contact you via e-mail before the event with specific instructions
