Everybody knows the Californian-inspired paintings of the British artist! But did you know that David Hockney is also the North West of France? Following a stay in Honfleur in 2018, David Hockney wanted to see the superb Bayeux Tapestry again. Like ancient Chinese scrolls, the exceptional narrative quality of the embroidery fascinated the artist! This admiration, he will associate it with his eternal desire to paint landscapes, especially the transition between winter and spring. Like a narrative, the artist's last ten paintings were completed in March 2019, when he settled in the Normandy countryside. He paints what surrounds him: first the house and then the Norman half-timbered architecture in general; a view of a village; the apple and pear trees in the garden; the trees in the morning mist. In the manner of the impressionists, he manages to capture the changing light and vibrations of the sky, day after day.
