“Hockney” opened today at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and at 
Metrograph in New York, and at Laemmle Theaters in Los Angeles. It is an 
exquisitely beautiful documentary about one of the world’s most 
respected artists who was born into a working class family in Bradford, 
England seventy-eight years ago. He shares that background with Andy 
Warhol whose father was a coal miner from Pittsburgh. Like Warhol, David 
Hockney is gay with the major difference being a willingness to 
represent the male figure erotically but by no means as daring as a 
Robert Mapplethorpe photo.
