David Hockney


David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most influential British artists of the twentieth century and is arguably one of the most important contributors to Pop Art movement outside of the United States.

The artist came to prominence in the 1960s with his depictions of quirky domestic scenes and queer relationships. 

Hockney is a master of many mediums, having worked with photography, collage, drawing, painting, set design, iPad art, and of course printmaking. His style has changed numerous times during his lengthy career, yet his work is always identifiable for a certain optimism and a je ne sais quoi 

This 1974 portrait features Yves-Marie Hervé, a close friend from Paris. With a light hand, Hockney demonstrates his remarkable talent as a draftsman, capturing Hervé's likeness through several techniques in shading and crosshatching.

Hockney's portraiture often revisits familiar subject matter, portraying members of his inner circle seated in full-length compositions with muted backgrounds and recurring embellishments such as floral bouquets. Similar elements are present in Hockney's 1976 portrait of Brooke Hopper.

In these striking portraits from the 70's, Hockney embraces the sitter's idiosyncrasies, focusing on their individuality as opposed to their environment.

David Hockney has exhibited internationally at prominent art institutions including the MoMA, the Royal Academy of Arts, and the National Portrait Gallery.
