Critical Review

Hockney gave expression to his fascination with Flaubert as he depicted scenes from his short stories, thus joining the rich lineage of artists, such as Auguste Rodin, Alphonse Mucha, and Odilon Redon who engaged with Flaubert’s writing through art. Apart from this portrait, Hockney created Félicité Sleeping With Parrot, an etching of the serving woman based on A Simple Heart, Flaubert’s first short story. The artist said in the context of Flaubert’s writing: ”These stories really affected me, and I felt it was a subject I could get into and really use.“
