This week, Modern British specialists Offer Waterman will celebrate the opening of their new Mayfair gallery with a specially curated exhibition of works on paper, from the 1960s and 1970s, by one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century, David Hockney.
The exhibition, on show at Offer Waterman from 25th September to 23rd October, provides an overview of a period which saw Hockney established internationally as one of the leading artists of his generation. It presents a remarkable body of work and offers us a rare insight into the artist’s unique perception of a period of time which continues to captivate contemporary audiences today.
A collaboration between Offer Waterman and the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York, the exhibition will include over fifty works, both for sale and on loan from international private collections.

'His subjects range from craggy, monumental, elderly WH Auden to Hockney's friend Celia Birtwell and lovers Peter Schlesinger and Gregory Evans, depicted with easy-going eroticism but also with an excitement at mastering the medium which animates this marvellous display throughout'
