David Hockney Shows Yorkshire Countryside in German Countryside

The Würth Kunsthalle in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, shows the first larger David Hockney exhibition in Europe for years. It is focusing on Hockney's Yorkshire landscapes.


David Hockney gained popularity to a wider audience with his attractive Californian poolside paintings: On the surface, they only show expressionist paintings of beautiful houses and swimming pools. ('A Bigger Splash' in the Tate Gallery collection is probably the best-known piece of this series.)


However, there is more: The art school professor Hockney develops his paintings with classic problems of painting (perspective, references. art history ...) in mind.


This becomes especially clear in his less popular (cubistic) photo works: He constructs a a motif (landscape) out of a large number or small size photos from various angles, which he assembles to the image of the motif. This way he develops Picasso's and (Braque's!) idea of analytic cubism further into photography.

This exhibition is about landscape painting. Until recent years, Hockney has never been recognized for painting the landscape of the region where he was born: Yorkshire. He was known for Californian highways or the Grand Canyon.


Now he is applying his wide array of techniques on his home region:

For ‘Woldgate Woods III‘, he is using six smaller canvases to construct a large painting. However, on each canvas he changes the perspective slightly. This way the eyes can move through the landscape themselves.


Annely Juda Gallery in London simultaneously shows David Hockney's facsimile works.

Computer applications are supposed to build up working your organization easier and more efficient, but that isn't always the scenario. This is especially true if it is new to your organization and your workers or if you’re entire human body assistance is lacking. Companies may end up spending too a lot of your current troubleshooting program issues internally and as a result, putting aspects off and resources that could be dedicated to other stuff. Company managers have many different needs pulling them in many different directions; handling challenges shouldn't be one of them. This is why outsourcing your Sage program assistance to a qualified MAS 100 or MAS 90 consultant seems sensible.
