“I used to love going to Cartwright Hall as a kid, it was the only place in Bradford I could see real paintings.” – David Hockney

Born in Bradford on 9 July 1937, David Hockney is celebrated his 80th birthday and 60 years of working as an artist in 2017.  Cartwright Hall Art Gallery, the public collection that inspired Hockney as a child and student, created a new permanent display of works by the internationally renowned artist.

The David Hockney Gallery showcases Bradford’s unrivalled public collection of early work and provides an introduction to his life and art with a particular focus on Yorkshire and Bradford. Visitors can enjoy previously unseen footage of the artist in his Bridlington studio.
