David Hockney

David Hockney is a painter, printmaker, photographer and stage designer, whom is perhaps the most popular and versatile British artist of the 20th century. A pioneer of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s alongside Richard Hamilton, David Hockney gained recognition for his semi-abstract paintings on the theme of homosexual love before it was decriminalized in England in 1967. In We Two Boys Clinging Together (1961), red-painted couples embrace one other while floating amidst fragments from a Walt Whitman poem.
