The Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum is about to initiate an ‘block buster’ exhibition with a huge number of Hockney’s landscapes, combined with Van Gogh paintings. The idea is to demonstrate that Hockney was inspired by the 19th century painter.
The exhibition makes some comparisons, especially on the use of perspective and color. Both artists use bright colors and experiment in the use of perspective. According to Hockney most people do not look properly, using one perspective only. His paintings intend to show that more perspectives are possible.
