Hockney at the National Portrait Gallery.

Anne and myself went to the opening of the David Hockney exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery last week. It was a wonderful boozy do with lots of celebrities. Great exhibition, most of his figurative big hittersĀ are there including percy the cat and Hockney’s parents but for me it reconfirmed that I like his drawings and draughtsmanship best of all. Even the drawings in pencil crayon are quite exceptional, if a little 80’s looking now, a medium that I would never think of using in a thousand years. It takes up the whole of the ground floor so it’s a big show in every sense and well worth seeing.
