A Rake's Progress - The Hockney and Hogarth Portfolios

This autumn, for the first time ever, all three versions of William Hogarth's “Rake’s Progress” (the original artwork, Stravinsky's opera and prints by David Hockney) will be on full display at the University of Colorado Boulder, thanks to a special collaboration among the CU-Boulder's Center for British and Irish StudiesCU Art Museum, College of MusicCU Opera, and the English and Art Departments of the College of Arts and Sciences. The chance to compare all three “Rakes” nearly at once will mark more than just a special event for Colorado museum and opera goers: it promises to be an exhilarating, even transformative, experience.
