David Hockney

La Grande Cour Normandy

Text by David Hockney
Design by David Hockney and Gregory Evans

This exhibition catalogue features the first body of work that British artist David Hockney made at his Normandy studio, depicting the arrival of spring.

A 24-panel panoramic drawing, here rendered as single panels as well as in a fold-out design, demonstrates Hockney’s ability to unite temporal and spatial experiences into a single image, inspired by Chinese scroll paintings and the Bayeaux Tapestry. The book includes a text on the series by the artist in English and French.

It took me 21 days to make the 24 drawings. All of my marks are visible, thousands of them.

I had made it twelve feet high, so you had to look all over it. You looked down on the sea. You had to look up to see the top of the tower. It is full of different perspectives.
