David Hockney is one of the most versatile and popular British artists of the 20th century. His work as a painter and printmaker brought him international fame in the 1960s, especially after his move from England to Los Angeles in 1963. In the 1970s, he became renowned for his stage designs for some of the world’s premier opera companies, including the Metropolitan Opera in New York. "Mirror, Lucca," which depicts a French dressing mirror draped with men’s neckties, suggests Hockney’s preoccupation at the time with costume- and theater-related themes.
