Hockney Printmaker at the Dulwich Picture Gallery

I saw a superb exhibition today; David Hockney’s prints at the Dulwich Picture Gallery. I am a big admirer of all of Hockney’s work; I admire his strong original drawing skills, sense of balance and rhythm, and use of colour; most of all I love the way he tells stories with image. I have longed to see his print work exhibited and this show did not disappoint, I came away marveling at Hockney’s range of image making in print, from the spare, pared down line work in etching through to the exuberant large scale colour lithographs.
