I popped along to the David Hockney exhibition A Bigger Picture at the Royal Academy in London on Friday. What a lovely, vibrant and uplifting show this is. The landscapes of the British countryside, with intense reference to the changing seasons, really touched me. The rhythm of nature and all its beauty is something we try to reflect in the pages of the Country Homes & Interiors every month, so I loved the way Hockney revisited the same locations to capture the spirit of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Recording the months in sketchbooks, on the IPad, on film and as vast canvases, this exhibition reaffirmed to me why it’s so important to stop and enjoy the simple pleasures of the natural world around us.
If you can stand the crowds, A Bigger Picture is definitely worth a visit!Tweet
