Discover David Hockney
David Hockney has been painting landscapes for over 50 years, capturing everything from the Grand Canyon to the rolling hills and little valleys of his native West Yorkshire. Executed in 2006, two years after his pivotal return from California, this canvas depicts a tunnel of trees lining a snowy country track. Employing loose, impressionistic brushstrokes, he pays tribute to the unspoiled beauty of his homeland.
Over the following years, Hockney would explore the most rural corners of East Yorkshire, capturing the shifting light and seasons. ‘I was painting the land, land that I myself had worked,’ he later recalled. ‘I had dwelt in those fields, so that out there, seeing for me, necessarily came steeped in memory.’
