David Hockney Drawing from Life @ National Portrait Gallery (until 21 Jan)

The Gallerys autumn programme will see the return of the five-star exhibition, David Hockney: Drawing from Life, which was staged for just 20 days before the Gallerys closure due to Covid in March 2020. The exhibition explores the artists work over the last six decades through his intimate portraits of five sitters: his mother, Celia Birtwell, Gregory Evans, Maurice Payne and the artist himself. His familiarity with the sitters enables him to work with a range of mediums and styles, from pencil, pen and ink and crayon, to photographic collage and the iPad. The 2023 exhibition will also debut a selection of over thirty new portraits. Painted from life they depict friends and visitors to the artists Normandy studio between 2021 and 2022.
