My Parents, 1977, painted in oils on canvas, is a subtle exploration of family relationships. Hockney found the painting difficult, and commented, ’Naturally it’s hard to paint your parents because you are examining both them and yourself, it’s a portrait of three people, in a way’. In the painting, Hockney’s mother sits patiently, as he has asked her to, whilst his father, unable to simply sit any longer, reads a book while he waits. Hockney had hoped to do more portraits of them, but this was prevented by the death of his father just a year later.

Dimensions: 40 x 30 cm. Ten colour Giclée printed on 300gsm fine art paper. Printed and produced in the UK.
