David Hockney Retrospective at Centre Pompidou, Paris 3rd arrdt

One of the advantages to attending retrospectives of artists you are wholly unfamiliar with is that the low-expectations principle is a given.

I now know that though Hockney may never be a great favourite of mine, I do like his swimming pools and his portraits (but not his later landscapes and interiors).

Furthermore, I know that however firmly anchored his art may seem in the 1970s, it also has that timeless quality to it that is the hallmark of great art.
