David Hockney: Normandism
Mar 22 – Sep 22, 2024
Musée des Beaux-Arts de Rouen
Rouen, France

The exhibition dialogues with the museum’s collections and reveals the English artist’s attachment to painting on canvas, even if he seized the possibilities offered by digital technology in the 1980s. His proposals are exciting, even more so when we realize the possible struggles tenants of canvases and those of the screen.

Hanging in the heart of a sumptuous collection by Blanche, Caillebotte and Renoir, 10 paintings by David Hockney open the doors to his studio. Recent landscapes created in Normandy, where he has lived and worked since 2019, dialogue with those of Claude Monet hung opposite them. His self-portrait, as well as nocturnal landscapes, complete the exhibition. In the Moon room, 13 nocturnal drawings on lpad and two paintings on canvas, in shades of blue and black, iridescent with the pale or golden reflections of the moon. Phenomenology of the open air, meteors, wind, reflections, fading horizons, tilt towards the sky, bright and strong colors, reveal the exceptional fertility of the impressionist soil.
