David Hockney Exhibit is Not to be Missed!

Perfect Fathers Day. My wife took me to The David Hockney Portraits exhibit at LACMA. This very impressive and colorful show continues through September 4, 2006. This is the first exhibition devoted solely to Hockney’s portraiture, one of the most significant facets of his work. Some highly detailed portraits using camera projection techniques, create an extremey fine image. His water colors are bright, cheerful and breathtaking. LACMA, senior curator, Stephanie Barron, has delivered a very impressive show. Don't miss the video movie showing Hockney painting (3) pictures in time-lapse photography.

Also at LACMA is the Gustav Klimt painting of Adele. Don't miss it! The crowds were light on Sunday! Cosmetics magnate Ronald S. Lauder paid the highest sum ever for a painting for Gustav Klimt's 1907 portrait "Adele Bloch-Bauer I."
