One artist who doesn't look so good is the biggest art star included, David Hockney, who's represented by a couple of halfhearted pieces. But to be honest, even Hockney at his best is beginning to age badly.
Royal Academy, which opened late last month, and Contemporary British Artists, which closes after a long run early next month, are--warts and all--both well worth our attention. But hurry, because there are only a few weeks left to take in both shows at the same time.
Art in the Age of Queen Victoria: Treasures From the Royal Academy of Arts, through August 15, and Contemporary British Artists, through July 11, both at the Denver Art Museum, 100 West 14th Avenue Parkway, 303-640-4433.
