David Hockney is one of the best-known British artists of his generation. This exhibition, the largest in the history of the de Young, features 300 works, including landscapes picturing the agrarian settings of his beloved East Yorkshire, England, as well as portraits of friends, colleagues, and family members. This installation also highlights his use of new technologies, from Photoshop portraits to digital videos that track the changing seasons, and bright landscapes created using the iPad.

"Love Life: David Hockney’s Timescapes" by Lawrence Weschler


October 26, 2013 - 2:00pm4:00pm

The remarkable past 30 years of Hockney's artistic development, culminating in the work on view in David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition, have been haunted by mortality, beginning with the AIDS crisis, which tracked almost exactly with the development of the Polaroid collages with which this whole latter phase of his career began. In a profound sense, they can be viewed as one sustained embrace of life in all its marvel in the face of all that desolation.

David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

Filmed over three years with unprecedented access to the artist, this documentary follows David Hockney as he returns to England after 25 years in Hollywood. As Hockney approaches the age of 70, he revitalizes his painting activity, capturing the beautiful Yorkshire countryside in all weathers and seasons, and finally creates the largest picture ever made outdoors. Originally premiering on BBC1, the film tells the story of an unusual homecoming and is also an intimate portrait of what inspires Hockney.
