Works from the Tate Collection
From January 28 to May 28, 2023
A landmark cultural institution in Aix-en-Provence, Musée Granet, in partnership with Tate, is hosting a 700-square-metre retrospective exhibition of works by leading British artist David Hockney.
Who doesn't know David Hockney?! He is one of the most famous contemporary artists in the world. This British artist, born in Bradford in 1937, has brought to art his singular vision, benefiting from an important recognition from his youngest age.
The fabulous collection of the Tate of London, lent for the occasion to the Granet Museum, offers us to (re)discover in more than 110 works (paintings, prints, photographic collages, drawings, digital works), the journey of the artist from his years of apprenticeship, through his series of pools known worldwide, to his latest digital creations that make his current fame.
It will also be an opportunity to better understand his fascination for the great masters such as Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh or Cézanne, from whom he drew inspiration to create works that can be seen exceptionally in the exhibition.
Aix-en-Provence marks the final stage in this exhibition that travelled to
- the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Bozar) in Brussels, Belgium in autumn 2021,
- the Kunstforum in Vienna, Austria in spring 2022,
- the Kunstmuseum in Lucerne, Switzerland in autumn 2022.
