David Hockney: Drawing from LifeWidely acknowledged for his expertise in drawing, David Hockney's intimate portraits are put under the spotlight at this National Portrait Gallery exhibition showing around 150 works. David Hockney: Drawing from Life focuses on four sitters close to him and his self-portraits to examine his distinctive way of observing the world. His admiration for old and modern masters, from Holbein to Matisse, is evident in his neo-Classical style line drawings of the 1970s and the 'camera lucida' drawings of the late 1990s. Always open to new technology, in the 1980s he used composite Polaroids to 'draw with the camera', as he described it, creating Cubist depictions of form which paid homage to Picasso. More recently years, he has used iPhone and iPad apps to create vast landscapes. As well as self-portraits dating from his school-boy days, this exhibition reveals four subjects dear to Hockney's heart: his muse, Celia Birtwell; his mother, Laura Hockney; the curator, Gregory Evans, and master printer, Maurice Payne.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
