Package Details

Renowned the world over for his light, bright and playful modern artworks, David Hockney is one of the most influential and inventive artists of our time and a leading figure of the British pop art scene.

In the midst of the global pandemic, Hockney retired to the bucolic setting of his farm in Normandy, where he captured the arrival of spring using an iPad as his canvas. 116 of Hockney’s digital illustrations, encompassing the dawn of a new season and the promise of brighter days ahead, now form an exciting new exhibition at the Royal Academy: The Arrival of Spring, Normandy, 2020.

Guests of our The Great Hockney Escape at Brown's Hotel package can enjoy an exclusive opportunity to meet David Hockney's curator at The Annely Juda Fine Art gallery and enjoy a special behind-the-scenes visit to learn more about the inspiration behind what is set to be an iconic collection of art for years to come. In addition guests will receive a special copy of his new book, Spring Cannot be Cancelled, signed by the co-author, Martin Gayford and Hockney-inspired welcome cocktails at The Donovan Bar. Special art amenities will be available to enjoy during your stay as well as full access to the gym and spa (excluding treatments). A percentage of each booking will go towards The David Hockney Foundation.

Just moments from Brown’s Hotel, guests can also glimpse his giant installation emblazoned across Piccadilly Circus depicting an animated sunrise which will be shown at 20:21 each evening in May to denote hope for a brighter future. The video has been synchronised with 70 screens around the globe in places such as New York, Korea and Japan.
