“A Year in Normandie,” an exhibition by David Hockney at Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris

“Remember that they cannot cancel spring, autumn or winter.”

Influenced by the famed 70m long Bayeux tapestry British painter, David Hockney, began working on a project to depict the arrival of spring as a narrative cycle. After the French countrywide lockdown was decreed, Hockney settled at his Normandy home and created more than one hundred images on an iPad. Building on his original project, Hockney went on to paint not only the spring cycle, but all four seasons.

On view now until February 14, 2022 at Musée de l’Orangerie
