A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

David Hockney: Ma Normandie


Galerie LeLong & Co / Paris / Art

David Hockney trusts his instincts. In 2018, while in London, he decided he needed to take a break and revisit Queen Matilda’s 11th-century tapestry in Bayeux, Normandy. During the visit, he decided to move to Normandy. This month in Paris, a dozen of Hockney’s new paintings, iPad drawings, and editioned prints—all created during his first year in his new French abode—go on view at Galerie Lelong & Co. The exhibition is titled “David Hockney: Ma Normandie,” and it features various paintings of his house and studio; the lush surrounding landscape in different seasons; and a marvelous painting of rain entitled, in Hockneyesque fashion, Some Smaller Splashes. Especially for the Lelong exhibition, Hockney has installed two large-scale facsimile prints of panorama ink drawings he made when he first moved in. Measuring 2.5 feet tall by 36 feet long, they are titled Around the House, Winter, and Summer. —Charlie Scheips
