David Hockney at the De Young

                             

It's not too late to catch David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. It will be there through January 20. This exhibit is unique in that it was assembled exclusively for the De Young Museum and showcases only his work from this century. The show includes large-scale, multi-canvas oil paintings, digital movies and landscapes created with the ipad, including drawings of Yosemite.

Hockney achieved early celebrity when his work was included in the Young Contemporaries exhibition which marked the rise of British pop art. Now 76, he continues to create at a frantic pace, and is also famous for his lavish opera stage sets.
