David Hockney, palm trees and homoeroticism in 'Paradise is Now'

"Café" from "Parade Triple Bill" (1979) by David Hockney is reproduced from Paradise Is Now: Palm Trees in Art, a staff favorite for Summer 2018. "Hockney integrates the homoeroticism that suffuses his themes into settings that render Los Angeles as tropical and urban at once," Eva Beck writes." The palm tree appears in this context as a sensual element, a phallic symbol whose visual quality he once described as ejaculatory."
