David Hockney exhibits at the Orangery Museum, near Monet‘s Water Lilies, depicting the seasons in a monumental fresco nearly 90 meters long.
A work on graphic tablet
Abandoning traditional painting in favor of his graphic tablet, and following the approach of the masters of Impressionism, he created a succession of Norman landscapes by capturing the effects of light and the climatic changes of the Pays d’Auge. David Hockney, fell in love with Normandy where he now lives. It was there, during confinement, that he wanted to pay tribute to this region he loves so much.
A portrait of the seasons
From the first frosts of winter to the long-awaited onset of spring, from blossoming orchards to fruit trees, the British artist has portrayed the enduring renewal of nature over an entire year. The result is an explosion of colors and light on a giant frieze where climatic changes are declined in juxtaposed flat areas.
