David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life

Ca’ Pesaro, Santa Croce 2076, Venice, Italy

Royal Academy of Arts, London and MUVE present at Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art, the exhibition David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life, a solo show by the famous contemporary English-Californian artist considered a leading exponent of Pop Art in the English-speaking world.

When he moved to Los Angeles in 1964 the artist changes focus, eternalizing American metropolis saturated by Californian blinding light. Hockney’s artistic production has always conferred a pivotal role to the figurative element.
In his chosen genres of portraiture and landscape, the artist combines traditional art techniques and new media.

The eighty-two portraits on display, realized between 2013 and 2016, are considered by the artist as a unique body of works embodying Los Angeles international art world through the faces of renowned gallery owners, critics, curators and artists.

Hockey’s art practice constantly uses identical elements: same size, three days of posing session, a seated figure and two-tone background. This apparently limited standards form a taxonomy of types and characters with different human temperaments transcending classifications of gender, identity or nationality and confirming the greatness of this master of our times.

The exhibition will travel to the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, and the LACMA, Los Angeles
