Vivid paintings, many inspired by Hockney’s boyhood Yorkshire landscape, and many large in scale, such as the ‘Three Trees’, in which each picture is roughly two metres high by five wide and is made up of eight canvases, two deep and four long, sit alongside related drawings and films. Many are new, created in the last eight years in the East Yorkshire Wolds near Hockney’s Bridlington home.

The exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts spans a 50-year period, demonstrating Hockney’s long exploration and fascination with the depiction of landscape. The exhibition also reveals how Hockney has embraced new technology, including his early use of the Polaroid, his innovative use of the colour photocopier, and more recently his iPhone and iPad. The exhibition includes a display of his iPad drawings and a series of new films produced using 18 cameras, which are displayed on multiple screens.
