David Hockney: Love Life
Sep 23, 2023 – Mar 10, 2024
Experience rarely-seen early drawings by one of the most popular and recognisable artists of our time, David Hockney (b.1937).
From a box of matches on a table to bunches of spring onions and leeks, David Hockney’s works exemplify his ability to find beauty in the more intimate and seemingly ordinary aspects of life, encapsulating Hockney’s love for life and his profound connection with the world around him. Made over sixty years ago, these drawings still resonate with the way of life established at Charleston, in which art and experimental thinking are at the centre of everyday life.
This exhibition provides a unique opportunity to marvel at the extraordinary power of observation and artistic finesse that characterises Hockney’s early works — some well known, and others rarely shown in public.
