These works by Hockney highlight the continuing importance of portraiture in his practice and demonstrate his feeling that 'drawings and paintings ... are much better than photographs in giving you a sense of the person'.

Hockney returned to painting after an intensive period depicting the Normandy landscape using an iPad. The portraits were painted quickly and directly on the canvas without signature. As Hockney has said, 'making a portrait slowly is a bit of a contradiction'.
