20. The Colourful World of David Hockney with Hannah Lingard
Welcome back art history lovers to the Jo's Art History Podcast!
It's episode 20 and today I sit down with British artist Hannah Lingard to discuss the colourful world of David Hockney!
A key figure in British contemporary art - Hockney’s love of colour is one of the artist’s defining features!
Something else Hockney is known for is his love of exploration and not pigeonholing his artistic practise - something Hannah and I both love about the artist!!
So join Hannah and I as we discuss the colourful world of David Hockney, his love of exploration, iPad drawings and why you should never stop challenging yourself!
The three Hockney works we talk about:
The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire in Twenty-Eleven, 365.8x975.4cm
