David Hockney, Homage to Van Gogh and wisps

Left: Homage to Van Gogh, 1988.
Right: Moving wisps. 1995.
It is a party of colors. The right is at a private collection and I feel very sad that such a great painting, that makes our eyes move to one texture to another, is not available to the public.
In the left Hockney homages Van Gogh by recreating the artist famous chair "Chair and Pipe" done in 1888 a century ago. I will do a post about how this chair became part of Van Gogh's iconography.
I created a label for David Hockney because he has been coming here many times.
