DAVID HOCKNEY AT EIGHTY
On July 9, David Hockney was eighty years old. To celebrate the occasion, Belgian television channel Canvas broadcast a long documentary and online auction Catawiki had the luminous idea of starting their Sunday photography auction with this fine portrait taken in 2012 by British photographer John Angerson, one from an edition of twenty-five.
