David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life


Member Price

David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life looks exclusively at the artist's new body of work that focuses on portraiture. 

David Hockney offers a vibrant and intimate view of people with whom he has developed relationships over the past 50 years. The majority of the portraits were painted in Hockney’s Los Angeles studio, all from life and over a period of two or three days, which the artist has described as “a 20-hour exposure.” None of Hockney’s portraits are commissioned; for this series he invited family, members of his staff, and close friends to sit for him—including several curators, art dealers, and collectors with local and international renown. John Baldessari, Douglas Baxter, Edith Devaney, Larry Gagosian, Frank Gehry, Peter Goulds, Barry Humphries, David Juda, Rita Pynoos, Joan Quinn, Norman Rosenthal, Jacob Rothschild, and Benedikt Taschen are among those portrayed, as well as LACMA’s Stephanie Barron and Dagny Corcoran. 

This publication is issued on the occasion of the exhibition David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from April 15 through July 29, 2018.This exhibition originated at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. LACMA will host the only United States presentation.
