An excerpt from “Co-Conspirators: Artist and Collector”
By Sue Scott
David Hockney is a bit of a wild card whose work came into the collection when two of Jim and Joe’s friends, Mark Berger (a schoolmate of Hockney’s in London) and Nathan Kolodner (whom Jim met at the gym), introduced them to the artist and his work. The collection contains an important early painting from 1964, Untitled (Landscape #1 and #2), and a large grouping of drawings used as studies for later paintings. “We liked Hockney’s early imagery, or lack thereof — images that suggest there’s more to come,” Jim says. “His work has hidden meanings and yet is personal.”
