Featuring over 125 drawings, the exhibition traces a trajectory from Hockney’s early works as a student, to his Ingres-like portraits of the 1970s, and his innovative work with the iPad in the new millenium. The exhibition is organized by the National Portrait Gallery, London, in collaboration with the artist and the Morgan Library & Museum.
