two weeks ago we visited one of the best places on earth the Metropolitan Museum of Art we had a list of exhibitions to view but, the top not to be missed was the David Hockney. 

  so after a yummy lunch at the Petrie Court Cafe we took in the retrospective of his life's work.


A Bigger Splash, 1967.

this painting was the exhibition cover image.
