'David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life' at the Guggenheim Bilbao

David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life will open November 10, 2017. Traveling from presentations at the Royal Academy of Arts and the Ca'Pesaro, this exhibition looks at the artist's renewed interest in portraiture in recent years. Hockney chose to paint sitters from all areas of his life, including friends, those who work in his studio, and prominent figures of the art world. Each portrait is the same size, and shows the sitter in the same chair against the same background, "yet Hockney's virtuoso paint handling allows their differing personalities to leap off the canvas with warmth and immediacy [...] offering an intimate snapshot of the LA art world and the people who have crossed the artist's path over the last years."

82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life will be on view November 10, 2017 through February 25, 2018 at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain. For more information, visit the museum's website
