Hockney close to home with Yorkshire landscape show

A major new show of British artist David Hockney’s recent landscapes is a homecoming of sorts, rooting the 74-year-old in his native Yorkshire and far from the swimming pools of Los Angeles for which he is most famous. ‘David Hockney: A Bigger Picture’ features more than 150 landscapes, many of which are vast in scale and vibrant in color. Most date from the last eight years barring a few earlier landscapes going back as far as 1956.
