David Hockney
82 Portraits and 1 Still-life

10 November 2017 - 25 February 2018
Guggenheim Museum Bilbao | Bilbao, Spain

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-life, an exhibition which brings together a unique collection—at once surprising, joyful, and touching—of works by the great British painter.

With this impressive series, David Hockney brings to light his private universe—his family, his friends and their children—in the creation of a remarkable portrait gallery featuring those who have crossed his path over the course of years and in the vast panorama of the Los Angeles art scene.

In 2012, the Guggenheim Bilbao presented the artist's monumental landscape exhibition David Hockney: A Bigger Picture. That same year, Hockney left his native Yorkshire to return to Los Angeles. In portraiture he found the calm of quiet contemplation; beginning in the summer of 2013, he created what would become a series of more than 90 paintings, 82 of which are presented in this exceptional exhibition.
