After the Tate in London, and before the Met in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris is hosting the retrospective exhibition organized to celebrate David Hockney's 80th birthday.
Ever since we discovered his work almost 20 years ago, in the 1999 Paris exhibition ("Espace/Paysage", already at the Centre Pompidou), Hockney has definitely been one of our favourite contemporary artists. I remember being struck at the time by the scope and colours of his West American landscapes.
Since then we have come to love his quiet and airy portraits and, above all, the Yorkshire landscapes he painted in the 2000s.
