David's Tie

Description

I did this painting after seeing David Hockney's "Large Interior"painting in the massive Wallace Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My painting is is a homage to Hockney and his favorite painters showing him gazing at one of Picasso's ceramic owls and at Matisse's grey dog. Also one of Hockney's blue and white striped ties that he was regularly seen wearing in the 1960s is draped on a chair to the right.
