Product story

The exhibition, featuring over a hundred new iPad paintings by Hockney, revels in the splendour of the season, as the artist experienced it last year while locked down in Normandy. Also in this issue, art historian Tamar Garb talks to Michael Armitage as the Kenyan-born painter prepares for an RA show of his work, and Austin Williams introduces the quiet harmony which drives the architecture of Chinese practice BCKJ, winners of the RA Dorfman Award 2020.

Plus: critic Alexandra Harris and sculptor David Nash RA go head to head on the question, ‘can art improve upon nature?’, Caleb Azumah Nelson contributes a new short story inspired by a Roy DeCarava photograph, and centenarian painter Diana Armfield RA reflects on the rigours of still-life painting.
