82 portraits


David Hockney’s exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London ’82 portraits and 1 still life’ brings out another side of the artist. Having dedicated the last few years to landscapes of his birthplace Yorkshire, he now turns his attention back to California, creating portraits of various friends who visited his studio.

With just a chair as prop, his subjects have little to hide behind and with body posture and dress each emerges as a distinct entity.
