(AP) A new exhibit of British painter David Hockney's work, including about 150 iPad images, has opened in the deYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park. It's just a short trip for Silicon Valley techies who created both the hardware and software for this 21st-century reinvention of finger-painting.

The show that opened Saturday is billed as the museum's largest ever, filling two floors with a survey of works from 1999 to present in watercolor, charcoal and even video. On a recent preview day, it was the iPad pieces, especially the 12-foot high majestic views of Yosemite National Park, that drew gasps.

Art historians say exhibiting iPad images by a prominent artist gives the medium a boost, helping digital artwork gain legitimacy in the notoriously snobby art world.
