(1937 - )

One of the founders of the British "Pop" Art movement, David Hockney gained international fame by his mid-20s and has since established himself as one of the best-known British artists of his generation. After having visited the United States extensively during the 1960s and 1970s, Hockney eventually settled permanently in Los Angeles in 1978. Much of Hockney’s work is autobiographical and many of his later drawings are frankly rendered, yet intimate everyday scenes of friends.
