David Hockney | The Man with the Blue Guitar

David Hockney is a multi-faceted artist whose works are characterized by an essential, simple aesthetic and a mundane realism that is often autobiographical in nature.  In 1976, he spent his summer on Fire Island reading the poems of Wallace Stevens. He was especially drawn to “The Man with the Blue Guitar,” which had been inspired by Picasso’s painting.  Hockney, in turn, made a set of colored etchings that combine music, poetry and printmaking in a series that explores the space between reality and imagination.
