The Hockneys is a never before seen insight into the lives of the family by youngest brother John, from growing up in the Second World War in Bradford through to their diverse lives across three continents. Hardship, successes as well as close and complex relationships are poignantly illustrated by both famous and private pictures and paintings from David Hockney.
With a rare and spirited look into the lives of an ordinary family with extraordinary stories, we begin to understand the creative freedom that led to their successful careers and the launchpad for an artists work that has inspired and continues to inspire generations across the world.
A book signing with John Hockney will be held at the Royal Academy on Sunday 6 October 1-2.30pm.

Never Worry What the Neighbours Think
Sunday 6 October 2019

‘Never Worry What the Neighbours Think’ was the philosophy that Kenneth Hockney used to inspire his children – David Hockney RA, one of the world’s greatest living artists and siblings John, Paul, Philip and Margaret – to each choose their own route in life.
Join the youngest brother and author John Hockney for a book signing of The Hockneys which presents a never before seen insight into the lives of the Hockney family. Hardship, successes as well as close and complex relationships are poignantly illustrated by both famous and private pictures and paintings from David Hockney.
The RA Shop will have a special display of Hockney gifts and artworks in-store to bring to life the story of a world-renown artist and his family.
