Season's Greetings from Kemper Museum
This holiday season we’d like to share with you Untitled No. 21 from The Yosemite Suite by David Hockney (b. 1937, Bradford, England).
Hockney has produced some of the most iconic artworks of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His ambitious and multifaceted approach to art has led him to embrace a range of methods and technologies—photography, fax machines, iPhones, and photocopiers— yet his work always remains rooted in painting.
