David Hockney in a personal crisis – his social circle and canvas worlds blend together
The painter David Hockney is thrown into a personal crisis during a protracted breakup with longtime lover Peter Schlesinger.
Hockney rushes to finish his Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) in time for a New York showing and to overcome the sorrow of the end of his affair with Schlesinger, all of which coincides with the decisive end of the Swinging London Youthquake.
Hockney’s social circle and the imaginary worlds of his canvases blend together, creating an endlessly beguiling, deeply melancholic study of an artist and his milieu.
