See David Hockney’s brilliant collection at the Tate

The most comprehensive collection of David Hockney‘s iconic art is now open at the Tate Britain gallery.

Regarded as one of the most influential British artists of the 20th Century, David Hockney’s work is now on display at the Tate Britain.

The exhibition includes some of the artist’s most famous work, including Peter Getting Out Of Nick’s Pool and A Lawn Being Sprinkled. Some of his newer work is also on display, including some never seen before paintings.

Hockney is renowned for his celebration of free love and liberalism, particularly with works such as 1961’s We Two Boys Together Clinging and 1963’s Domestic Scene, Los Angeles.

His work is worth millions of pounds in the art market, having opted to set up a foundation to donate his work to international galleries, including the Tate.

“David Hockney is without doubt one of Britain’s greatest living artists,” Alex Farquharson, Director, Tate Britain says. “His practice is both consistent, in its pursuit of core concerns, while also wonderfully diverse. Hockney’s impact on post-war art, and culture more generally, is inestimable, and this is a fantastic opportunity to see the full trajectory of his career to date.”

Tickets for the must-see exhibition of truly influential works are available now through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
