The Royal Academy of Arts will present the first major exhibition in the UK to showcase David Hockney’s landscape work. Vivid paintings inspired by Yorkshire landscape, many large in scale and created specifically for the exhibition, will be shown alongside related drawings and films. This new work will be placed in the context of Hockney’s extended exploration of landscape.
A Bigger Picture will open in January, and features several of his digitally inspired paintings of his native Yorkshire. Having recently returned to the seaside town of Bridlington, and the surrounding countryside has become the source of many of his pictures. The artist has spent 30 years in L.A. and returning to the UK allows him to work in peace.
