David Hockney, RA (British b. 1937)

Hockney had already acquired a national reputation by the time he left the Royal College of Art with the gold medal for his year in 1962. From his first one-man show in 1963 at the Kasmin Gallery, London, Hockney has gone on to become the most widely acclaimed British artist born in this century.
Although he has long distanced himself from Pop Art, preferring to cite Picasso as his greatest inspiration, he has continued to pursue a line of investigation particularly associated with the movement. Since 1979 he has again made Los Angeles his main home.
