Slate has a nice, brief "slide-show essay" about British pop artist David Hockney: "David Hockney Is Afraid To Be Alone"
Regular visitors to this blog know my favorite:
Portrait of Nick Wilder (1966)
None of these are included in the slide-show, either:
Beverly Hills Housewife (1966)
A Lawn Being Sprinkled (1967)
A Bigger Splash (1967)
The pictures of the paintings are from the excellent Artchive. I get lost there! God bless whoever maintains it.
The work Hockney did from 66-70 after he first visited America, and specifically, Los Angeles, speaks to me. The retro aspect is appealing, and I love the architecture of the homes in the paintings of that period.
