EAST COAST HOLIDAY

When we were in the cafe at Sledmere House I was struck by the pictures on the walls.”I’m sure they are Hockneys” I said to Lady C “especially as that one says Warter on the signpost”

Lady C and I went to York especially to see Hockney’s enormous ’ Big trees at Warter’ in the Art Gallery there.

I asked a very helpful and knowledgeable lady steward in the house about them and they were indeed original Hockneys. He is a friend of the family and his latest book was launched at the house. An unexpected treat.

53-foot long  Times Square Mural, by Roy Lichtenstein, a gift to the city in 1994, but not displayed until 2002.
"Twelve years ago the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Arts for Transit program commissioned Roy Lichtenstein to create a mural for the Times Square subway station. A native New Yorker who had ridden the subway since boyhood, Lichtenstein jumped at the chance to create a work of public art. So he designed a 6-foot-tall, 53-foot-long porcelain enamel futuristic vision of New York, which he decided to make a gift to the city."
