No one does radiant color and pictorial unfolding in ways as endlessly inventive as the now-80-year-old David Hockney, our living maestro of the Lightness of Being. Openly gay, mingling with high and low culture as new artistic worlds were forming and old ones falling away, Hockney celebrated sybaritic and serious life but also the abstract complexities of time, light, shadow, permanence, and transience. At the Met, you can behold a sampling of this English master’s half-century: drawings, films, iPad sketches, paintings, and more. Don’t miss the films he’s made about art either; they are among the most insightful I’ve ever seen.
