About this event

To coincide with the Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy, Peter will discuss Hockney as someone he has known since 1970, who has drawn his portrait, created an original etching for the Collectors’ Edition of his book The Erotic Arts in 1975, and whom he has watched painting some of his best-known works, including Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy in the Tate Collection. He will also discuss Hockney’s latest work, currently on show at the Royal Academy.

Peter Webb has degrees from Cambridge and London Universities and a Doctorate from the University of East Anglia. After a lectureship at Coventry College of Art, he started teaching the first degree course in England on the subject of The Erotic Arts, at Hornsey College of Art in 1970 and lectured extensively on related topics at universities and colleges throughout the seventies and eighties.

He published his influential book on the same subject in 1975, which was reprinted and updated. Subsequently he has written books on Hans Bellmer, David Hockney and Leonor Fini. After Hornsey, he taught at Middlesex University. He retired as Reader in the History of 20th Century Art in 1996.
