When making a portrait, “it’s their mood and your mood together that creates whatever’s there,” David Hockney once said. An avid portraitist throughout his entire career, David Hockney has painted, drawn, or printed hundreds of portraits since the mid-1960s. Frequently drawn to the same subjects, Hockney often depicts …

David Hockney’s "James" is an intimate portrait of one of the artist’s close friends. The simplicity of Hockney's line-work highlights the artist's mastery of drawing and his ability to render depth and space with mere use of a few lines.

British, b. 1937

A pioneer of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s alongside Richard Hamilton, David Hockney gained recognition for his semi-abstract paintings on the theme of homosexual love before it was decriminalized in England in 1967. In We Two Boys Clinging Together (1961), red-painted couples embrace one other while floating amidst fragments from a Walt Whitman poem. After moving to California at the end of 1963, Hockney began painting scenes of the sensual and uninhibited life of athletic young men, depicting swimming pools, palm trees, and perpetual sunshine. Experimenting with photography in the mid-1970s, Hockney went on to create his famous photocollages with Polaroids and snapshot prints arranged in a grid formation, pushing the two-dimensionality of photography to the limit, fragmenting the monocular vision of the camera and activating the viewer in the process. A versatile artist, Hockney has produced work in almost every medium—including full-scale opera set designs, prints, and drawings using cutting-edge technology such as fax machines, laser photocopiers, computers, and even iPhones and iPads.
