I was reminded this weekend while walking round the London Print Fair, about just how great a talent David Hockney is – his print work stood alongside those of the ‘greats’ Picasso, Chagall, Matisse and it carried itself well I have to say. The works I first came to know of Hockney are from his early immersion in LA inthe late 1960’s and early 70’s – drenched in sun and pool living these painting are about as far from his Northern English roots as you can get. There is something effortless chic and laid back about them, these were the images that largely made him in terms of popularity and public acknowledgement and I think they are still relevant today.Follow @ispyer
