Landscape painting has rarely seemed as much fun as it does in the new David Hockney exhibition at London's Royal Academy.
In "A Bigger Picture," the 74-year-old artist turns the fields, forests and muddy lanes of his native Yorkshire in northern England into riots of bold, infinitely varied color.
This exhibition assembles more than 150 of his works, most created after Hockney moved back to England from California in 2004. He lives in the seaside town of Bridlington and finds artistic inspiration in the surrounding area, known as the Yorkshire Wolds.
The show, which opens Saturday and runs to April 9, looks set to be a blockbuster for the Royal Academy.
Demand for tickets caused the academy's computer system to crash on Tuesday.
