David Hockney: Love Life

Our latest exhibition at Charleston in Firle, ‘David Hockney: Love Life’ showcases rarely-seen early drawings by one of the most popular and recognisable artists of our time.

We caught up with curator Chris Stephens – Director of the Holburne Museum in Bath, and organiser of this touring exhibition – to find out what these works reveal about Hockney’s practice.
