No need for velvet ropes. The entire crowd was VIP at the party Michael Findlay threw in honor of David Hockney in May of 1972. A key player in the Pop Art movement, Hockney drew an impressive crowd to Findlay’s three-story loft in SoHo. “It’s the crème de la crème of the Seventies scene if you ask me,” said filmmaker Joe Wemple. Hockney hadn’t visited America in two years. From behind his signature black-rimmed owl eyeglasses, he told WWD, “The last time, I came with Celia Birtwell and she kept saying how frumpy everyone looked.”
