Artistic Inspiration on the Yorkshire Wolds
David Hockney: A Bigger Picture
At two hugely successful exhibitions at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany; David Hockney RA, showcased his first major exhibition of new landscape works. Featuring vivid paintings inspired by the East Yorkshire landscape, the large-scale works were created especially for the galleries at the Royal Academy of Arts and shown alongside related drawings and film.
The Yorkshire Wolds provided the inspiration for the new series of artworks that span 50 years of Hockney's fascination with the area. Why not visit the inspiration first hand and discover what makes the Yorkshire Wolds so special?
Now the Yorkshire Wolds landscape features in a documentary film, about the man considered by many to be the greatest living British artist.
David Hockney has opened up his personal archives for the first time for a BBC2 documentary produced by Blakeway and Fly Film.
