About The Artist

David Hockney

David Hockney, OM, CH, RA (b.1937) is a British painter, draftsman, printmaker, stage designer, and photographer. Rising to prominence in the 1960s Hockney has been deemed one of the most influential artists of the 20th century by the British Royal Academy of Arts. Hockney was a notable contributor to the pop art movement in Britain both in its foundation and growth. Over the years, Hockney has experimented with various different media - painting, drawing, printmaking, watercolours and photography, also creating works using a fax machine, paper pulp, and computer and iPad drawing programmes. His subject matter ranges from still lifes to landscapes, portraits of friends, his dogs, and stage designs for the Royal Court Theatre, the Metropolitan Opera in New York City and Glyndebourne.

Celebrates the original David Hockney designs from the 1975 Glyndebourne production of The Rake's Progress.

Inspired by an original recording conducted by Igor Stravinsky and William Hogarth's series of eight paintings and engravings of the same name, Hockney began designing the set and costumes for the Glyndebourne production of The Rake's Progress. Through his designs and the use of his now iconic cross-hatched etchings, he wanted to create a 20th century response to the opera and to Hogarth's 18th century idea.

The Drop Curtain design is now available in this exclusive porcelain tea bag tidy made in the UK by Halcyon Days.

An afternoon tea essential, handcrafted from English Fine Bone China, this is a practical and quirky addition.

Glyndebourne commissioned a collection of products from the British retailer Halcyon Days. Working closely with their bespoke design team, and the Hockney studio, a new 13-piece collection was created, commemorating and celebrating the original Hockney designs from the 1975 The Rake’s Progress.

Established in 1950, Halcyon Days remains one of only 14 companies in the world to hold all three Royal Warrants, as suppliers of objets d’art. Like Glyndebourne, their core belief is the development and nourishment of talent and craftsmanship. All of its enamel products are made by hand in their factory in Wolverhampton, the original homeland of where the industry began in the 18th century.
