“‘Who wouldn’t want one? Picasso or Van Gogh would have snapped one up,’ the artist David Hockney tells me at the opening of his latest show in Paris called Fleurs Fraiches, or Fresh Flowers,” Colin Grant reports for BBC News.

“Hockney, dressed in a bespoke suit made with pockets large enough to fit an iPad, seems most amused by it all,” Grant reports. “More than a dozen iPads reveal the drawings, many of them flowers, with the artist’s signature flair and beguiling simplicity. The title is apt as the images on the iPads are ‘refreshed’ during the course of the show; new flowers replacing the earlier ones.”
