A Portrait of the Artist as an Old Man
One of the defining figures of the modernist art movement, David Hockney has carved out a career of enviable longevity and stylistic diversity. Renowned for his L.A.-based pool series and his large-scale landscapes, Hockney's striking use of colour and inventive artistic vision. With unprecedented access to Hockney's working and personal life, David Hockney: A Bigger Picture intimately captures the 70-year-old on his return to South Yorkshire after 25 years in California.
Following a six-year hiatus from painting, Hockney once again reinvents his artistic method, endevouring to capture the great British landscape in all weathers so to create the largest painting ever made outdoors. Concurrently, Hockney meditates on his inspirations and motivations, presenting a uniquely personal portrait of a complex and engaging artist for our times.
