David Hockney’s A Rake’s Progress series (1961–63) is currently exhibited at the Contemporary Art Society. Following the format and numbering of William Hogarth’s famous series, the prints narrate the ups and downs of his own journey in New York in the early 1960s, and provide an insightful glimpse of the artist’s practice during these formative years.
