Legendary artist David Hockney has revealed his latest painting, featuring One Direction phenomenon Harry Styles.

The 86-year-old's new artwork will go on show at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

He painted the Watermelon Sugar hitmaker at his art studio in Normandy, France.

Styles has just finished his nearly two-year stint of Love On Tour, which saw him performing all over the world for 22 months.

The portrait of 29-year-old Styles illustrates the award-winning singer wearing an orange and red cardigan with his classic pearl necklace and blue jeans.

His colourful addition will be one of more than 30 new portraits that will be displayed for the first time when ‘David Hockney: Drawing from Life’ opens on November 2.

What artwork will feature in David Hockney: Drawing from Life at the National Portrait Gallery?

Portraits of Hockney’s mother, the late Laura Hockney, his friend and fashion designer Celia Birtwell, his former partner and curator Gregory Evans, and people from the local Normandy community where he lives will be displayed at the gallery.

The exhibition was previously on display at the National Portrait Gallery for just 20 days in 2020 before it was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to the 33 new works, there are also colour-pencil drawings created in Paris in the early 1970s and a selection of drawings from the 1980s, when the artist created a self-portrait every day over a period of two months.

The art pieces in the exhibition have been rendered in pencil, pastel, ink and watercolour with Hockney also making use of a 35mm camera and apps found on the iPhone and iPad.

The new portraits of the artist’s partner, Jean-Pierre Goncalves de Lima, mark a return to painting after Hockney spent time using his iPad to capture the Normandy landscape around his home.

Altogether, around 160 works from public and private collections, including from the artist himself will comprise the exhibition.

Speaking on the opening of David Hockney: Drawing from Life, Sarah Howgate, senior curator of contemporary collections at the National Portrait Gallery said: “Closing this five-star exhibition after just 20 days in 2020 was incredibly disappointing for the gallery and its many visitors, making this restaging of David Hockney: Drawing from Life all the more significant.

“Now revitalised with over 30 new energetic and insightful painted portraits of friends and visitors to the artist’s Normandy studio, it is a real privilege to have the opportunity to collaborate with David Hockney again.”

The National Portrait Gallery reopened in June following a three-year, £41.3 million refurbishment.

Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Nicholas Cullinan, said: “Following our reopening and the success of a brilliant first summer, I am delighted to be restaging this major exhibition for David Hockney at the new National Portrait Gallery, which makes good on a pledge I made to David in March 2020 that we would return to his wonderful exhibition in better days.

“Hockney is one of the most internationally respected and renowned artists today, and to see his new portraits, made over the last couple of years and which demonstrate his constant and continuing ingenuity and creative force, is life-affirming.”
