The Hockney Window and an iPad

The most interesting thing about this new window by David Hockney… He said he had reworked the design for the window from an earlier painting using an iPad.

Read the article and see the window here. I’ve wrestled with the idea that art created on an iPad was somehow less valid or that it wou...

Does it matter if the artist who's said to have painted Barack Obama's portrait had assistants who did much of the work?

Richard Johnson at Page Six writes:Sources say artist Kehinde Wiley — who painted the former president before a background of greenery and flowers — has studios in China and produces most of his work there. "It’s his base of operation," said art critic Charlie Finch, who has known Wiley and appreciated his talent since they were students at Yale. "He has dozens of assistants working for him.... Normally, Wiley sketches out the important parts, and assistants fill out the rest."I went there becau...

David Hockney At 80: Still Stylish, Sunny, And Stubborn (Especially About Smoking)

Deborah Solomon goes to visit the artist in California: "Hockney is still a dapper, vigorous presence. His conversation is wide-ranging and larded with literary references, and his manner is so genial and confiding that at first you do not notice how stubborn he can be. He delights in espousing contrary opinions, some of which come […]

"If you dismiss David Hockney and Robert Crumb and believe only avant garde conceptual art has value, you won’t like Dylan’s landscapes."

"Yet if you do admire either of those meticulous artists, there is no reason to look down on Bob Dylan just because he happens to be a rock star. He has a surprising amount in common with Hockney. His art looks more serious with every exhibition. He is turning into a hero for anyone who thinks drawing is a noble thing to do."Writes Jonathan Jones in The Guardian about Bob Dylan's art show in London. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]
