I watched a terrific documentary on David Hockney a few weeks ago (here's the trailer for it). It was roughly two hours long and covered his life from the time he went to art school to the present day. The nice thing about it was that it used home movies made by David and his friends, so you got to see the young Hockney painting at the start of his career and generally larking about. One of the sections of the documentary talked about his impeccable/ quirky dress sense. I have collected a few choice outfits here for your viewing pleasure. Additionally, I read today that Hockney is having a huge retrospective exhibition of his work at the Tate Britain in 2017. Now that's an exhibition I'd love to see! To stand in front of Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy (see below) would be an absolute treat. Meanwhile, please enjoy my mini homage to the great man here.
