David Hockney: Normandy Portraits


David Hockney: Normandy Portraits

A compact album presentation of Hockney's newest explorations in portraiture

This concise volume illustrates around 40 acrylic on canvas works painted by David Hockney (born 1937) at his Normandy studio—depicting his friends and visitors, as well as the artist himself. David Hockney: Normandy Portraits showcases a series of some previously unseen portraits, across 48 pages, uninterrupted by text, to allow readers to engage directly with the artworks.
These new works highlight the ongoing importance of portraiture within the artist’s practice and demonstrate his sentiment that "drawings and paintings … are a lot better than photographs to give you a sense of the person."
Hockney returned to painting after an intensive period spent depicting the Normandy landscape using an iPad. The portraits were painted quickly and directly onto the canvas without underdrawing. As Hockney has said, "to do a portrait slowly is a bit of a contradiction."
David Hockney (born 1937) is one of the most significant British artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. He attended the Royal College of Art in London and exhibited in one of the first British Pop art shows. In 1964 he moved to Los Angeles, where he lived for many years before returning to his native Yorkshire for a time. In addition to painting, Hockney has pursued photography, collage and printmaking, as well as digital illustration. He lives and works in Normandy, France.

The unmistakable portraiture of David Hockney

The unmistakable portraiture of David Hockney

At last we are able to feature David Hockney’s much talked-about portrait of Harry Styles, made while the pop star was visiting the Pop artist’s remote, seventeenth-century cottage in northern France in the spring of 2022. It’s reproduced from David Hockney: Normandy Portraits, published to accompany the exhibition—which also comes with a previously published catalog, David Hockney: Drawing from Life—on view now at National Portrait Gallery, London, through January 21, 2024. Combined, the two books feature the artist’s most important and iconic sitters, from his partner Jean-Pierre Gonçalves de Lima to his longtime muse Celia Birtwell, to his mother, Laura Hockney, and others equally close or, like Styles, equally spectacular. A number of superb self-portraits round the books out. continue to blog
