Vie De David Hockney
"Perhaps he would never feel a passion like the one he felt for Peter, maybe there would be no more perfect union, but there remained the perfection of friendship, the beauty the cypresses on the hills and the joy that the work gave, and if he forgot about Peter, if he managed to live without him, would not he come back? No one was attracted by sadness and melancholy. by gaiety, strength, happiness, yes ". Born in 1937 in a small town in the north of England, David Hockney had to fight to become an artist. He lived between London and Los Angeles, through the AIDS years and shook the world of art with a vitality and freedom that did not break down love sorrows, illness, conflict or mourning.
