David Hockney + Vincent Van Gogh on: Spring

A piece from David’s Arrival Of Spring

A piece from David’s Arrival Of Spring

“…I was always interested in the arrival of spring, what comes first. Marvellous time, of course it’s gaiety, of course it’s fresh about blossom isn’t it?

Winter’s over, all the plants are coming up. There’s a moment when i said nature has an erection, when everything is stood up like that, it looks as though champagne has been poured over the bushes and it’s all over and it looks marvellous and it only lasts like two days or something i mean at it’s peak…” - Hockney

“I’m in a fury of work as the trees are in blossom and i wanted to do a Provence orchard of tremendous gaiety” - Van Gogh
