The art world has been gearing up as one of its living legends comes to town – and perhaps unsurprisingly David Hockney’s new exhibition is the fastest selling in the Tate’s history. As expected, the retrospective of his work (which Hockney describes as like being reunited with ‘old friends’) displays his iconic swimming pools, rolling Yorkshire dales and Hollywood hills. But importantly, the show houses lesser known pieces too – many of which have been in private collections for decades – celebrating the entirety of his six decade-long career.
Make your way over to admire some of the world’s best-loved masterpieces before 29 May when the exhibition moves onto Paris and New York.
