A leading figure in the Pop Art movement, Hockney's later portraits, swimming pool scenes and illustrations have earned him an international popularity. Born in Bradford, Yorkshire, and based from 1977 in Los Angeles, he is also celebrated for his stage designs and photography. The full title of this self-portrait is The Student - Homage to Picasso and Hockney has shown himself, portfolio under his arm, contemplating a large head of Picasso mounted on a plinth.
