David Hockney, The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire in 2011 (twenty eleven), 2011

Organized by the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, David Hockney: A Bigger Picture is the first major exhibition held in Spain to celebrate the crucial role landscape plays in the career of this artist, considered the most important living British painter.

Bright landscapes inspired by his native county of Yorkshire form the core of this exhibition, which, with Iberdrola’s sponsorship, brings together on the museum's second floor nearly 150 works—oil paintings, charcoals, iPad drawings, sketchbooks, and digital videos—most of which have been created in the past eight years. The exhibition offers a unique vision into Hockney's creative world and demonstrates his enormous capacity to represent nature using different techniques, as well as revealing his attachment to the landscape of his youth.
