English-born Hockney is versatile and experimental, working as a painter, printmaker, stage designer, photographer, and draftsman. He gained prominence in the early 1960s as a leader of Pop Art and is strongly associated with Los Angeles, his longtime home and a major them in his work. His oeuvre ranges from bold-colored epic landscapes of California and the West (as in the Museum's painting) to portraits of friends and photocollages, in which he joins together hundreds of photographs forming Cubist-inspired compositions.
