David Hockney, at 86, is still full of childish curiosity. Recently, a British artist captured one of the biggest superstars in pop music: Harry Styles. The painting will be part of the Drawing From Life exhibition, which opens at the National Portrait Gallery in London on November 2. Vogue writes about it.
“David Hockney has been redefining our view of the world for decades. I’m honored to be drawn by him,” Styles said in an interview.
The artist’s flagship exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London will feature 33 new portraits created by Hockney between 2021 and 2022. The exhibition will include works drawn by the British artist both digitally using an iPad and more traditional watercolors and inks.
Recall that previously the auction house Christie’s put up for auction the personal collection of the co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen. Among the 150 works of art, in addition to paintings by Sandro Botticelli, Paul Cezanne and Pierre Auguste Renoir, there were also works by David Hockney.
