Event Description:
The CU Art Museum, the College of Music, and the Center for British and Irish Studies will host a multidisciplinary conference organized by Jeremy Smith, Associate Professor of Musicology, College of Music and Director, Center for British and Irish Studies and Keith Waters, Professor of Music Theory, College of Music, University of Colorado Boulder titled The Rake's Progress: Stravinsky, Hogarth, Hockney, Auden, and Kallman. The conference will take place at the Center for British Studies, fifth floor of Norlin library.

The exhibition Hockney and Hogarth: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Collection of British Art builds on the remarkable strengths of the CU Art Museum’s collection of British art and features David Hockney’s first major print series, A Rake’s Progress (1961-63), alongside the 1735 series by William Hogarth that inspired it.

A large selection of additional works from the 119 William Hogarth engravings included in the CU Art Museum’s permanent collection are also on view, such as the complete Marriage A-la-Mode and The Four Times of Day series, selections from the Industry and Idleness and The Four Stages of Cruelty series, the plates created for Hogarth’s aesthetic treatise The Analysis of Beauty, as well as numerous individual prints. Also on view are published Hogarth works from the Special Collections Department, Norlin Library, University Libraries as well as a video of the 1975 Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, with stage and costume designs by David Hockney, allowing audiences to experience a major performance inspired by the similarly titled Hogarth and Hockney print series.
