From pencil to pen, from ink to pastel, from photographic collage to the iPad, the carousel of styles and tools used by the genius of David Hockney returns to illuminate the rooms of the National Portrait Gallery. Set up for just twenty days in March 2020, before being closed due to the pandemic, the David Hockney: Drawing from Life exhibition is back on the London agenda, among the top events for art lovers. The itinerary explores the British artist's work over the past sixty years through his intimate portraits. Five immortalized subjects: the artist's mother, Celia Birtwell, Gregory Evans, Maurice Payne and David Hockney himself. On the occasion of the 2023 appointment, guests of the National Portrait Gallery will also be able to discover a selection of new portraits, starring friends and guests who visited the artist's studio in Normandy between 2020 and 2022.
