A Bigger Picture is the name of the David Hockney exhibition - and it really is filled with big pictures, all of them landscapes. A good thing too, because the Royal Academy's intimate galleries are crammed with sell-out crowds. So, unlike other blockbuster exhibitions, you can actually see the work.
But even if the pictures were smaller you would see them and feel them. This side of Van Gogh you won't see brighter colored landscapes. But where Vincent's works take color to the brink of madness, Hockney takes color to the level of celebration and joy. In doing so he makes the green and pleasant English countryside into something epic.
