David Hockney 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life
Catalogue of the exhibition David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life
After his 2012 exhibition of Yorkshire landscapes, David Hockney returned to Los Angeles and turned to portraiture, a genre that has always been present in his artistic practice. This volume is the catalogue of the exhibition 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life, which features Hockney’s relatives, friends, and acquaintances who sat for him at his Los Angeles studio. Hockney created each of these works in three days, and all his models sat for him on the same chair against the same blue background. The result is a fascinating gallery of characters who have crossed the artist’s path in the last few years.
