The Morgan Library & Museum is delighted to present David Hockney: Drawing from Life, opening October 2, 2020,and running through May 30, 2021. David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most internationally renowned living artists. The exhibition is organized by the National Portrait Gallery, London, in collaboration with the artist and the Morgan. The exhibition was curated by Sarah Howgate, Senior Curator of Contemporary Collections at the National Portrait Gallery, London.It will be the first to focus on his portraits on paper,and one of very few to investigate his drawing practice. Featuring over 100 drawings and prints, it will trace a trajectory from the artist’s early sketches as a student, through his Ingres-like portraits of the 1970s, to his return to the sketchbooks and imaginative iPhone and iPad portraits in the early 2000s.
