David HOCKNEY

ArtMarketInsight

In September, Christie's and Sotheby's will once again act in unison - this time in London - by taking turns to organise exhibitions of 1960s of English artists, each in collaboration with a gallery owner.
Friday is Top day! Every other Friday, Artprice posts a theme-based auction ranking. This week: the 10 best auction results for British artists of all generations over the past eight months.
At the end of the first quarter of 2009, the global art market price index showed a 10% contraction. But in New York City, host to some of the world’s most prestigious art sales, the crisis is being felt particularly hard: the same index shows a 35% local contraction since January 2008.
The market is holding its breath ahead of the critical May sales in New York that will inevitably gauge the health of the Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary segments. As expected, the price tags are substantially lower than a year earlier in all three segments
Born in 1937 in Bradford (Yorkshire), David Hockney entered the Royal College of Art in London in 1957. In the 1960s, he moved away from abstract expressionism and began experimenting with figurative art combining abstract, figurative and pop art. He began producing engravings in 1961. A few years later when he had moved to Los Angeles, he began applying new light and colours to his work. His work became naturalistic and more autobiographical. He painted interior scenes and his famous swimming pools, in particular The Bigger Splash which won him international acclaim. He also produced numerous portraits, often of close family members or friends. From the 1970s, he started dedicating more time to large-format double portraits, an aspect he would apply later in his watercolours.
