David Hockney

Hockney in 2017 David Hockney (born 9 July 1937) is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer, and photographer. As an important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Hockney has owned residences and studios in Bridlington, England; and London as well as two residences in California, where he has lived intermittently since 1964: one in the Hollywood Hills, one in Malibu. He has an office and stores his archives on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood, California.

On 15 November 2018, Hockney's 1972 work ''Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures)'' sold at Christie's auction house in New York City for $90 million (£70 million), becoming the most expensive artwork by a living artist sold at auction. It broke the previous record which was set by the 2013 sale of Jeff Koons' ''Balloon Dog (Orange)'' for $58.4 million. Hockney held the record until 15 May 2019 when Koons reclaimed the honour by selling his ''Rabbit'' for more than $91 million at Christie's in New York. Provided by Wikipedia
