Texte It was the summer of 2017...

In the summer of 2017, in collaboration with London’s Tate Britain and the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the Centre Pompidou presented the most comprehensive retrospective ever devoted to the work of David Hockney.

The exhibition celebrated the artist’s 80th birthday, retracing his entire career through more than 160 works (paintings, photographs, engravings, video installations, drawings and printed works), including his most iconic paintings (swimming pools, double portraits and monumental landscapes) and some of his most recent creations.
