Boys in the


Two boys in the pool Hollywood, 1965

The mixture of the banalities and refinement which is Pop Art has always been the perfect mastery of David Hockney. Hockney never has changed his conventionalized subjects (landscapes, strange countries, beautiful people) - and many critics have named him a superficial artist since he also has never tried to hide his lust for life and his passion for attractive youths and for luxury. Nevertheless, American expressionism wildly finds way through him into the swimming pool nexus.
