The Rake's Progress: when Hockney met Hogarth

http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2010/aug/02/rakes-progress-cox-hockney-glyndebourne/print

By Nicholas Wroe [The Guardian, 2 August 2010]

The long, oak-panelled walls of the Old Green Room at Glyndebourne are decorated with images from historic productions. Sketches of costume designs and sets, photographs of famous singers and conductors, great moments going back to the birth of the festival in 1934. David Hockney is inspecting details from the 1975 production of Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, revived this year. His eye catches a fragment of a poster, distinctively illustrated in his own hand, that reads "décor by David Hockney, assited [sic] by Mo McDermott".
