Note: This is a portrait of the artists brother. For 14 years, John Hockney shared an attic bedroom with his brother, David. He didn’t know it then, but in their childhood closeness, he would witness the formative years of one of the greatest artists of the 21st century in a way that few others would. In a recent book, John - the youngest of five children - looks back on early life with his famous sibling, offering a never before seen insight into the whole Hockney family, from growing up in Bradford in the Second World War through to their diverse lives in adulthood across three continents. There are just two years in age between him and David and the brothers grew up playing together, enjoying a shared love of adventure and exploring Yorkshire’s communities on bike and on foot.
