What's It Like To Pose For David Hockney? We Asked The People In His Portraits

As artist David Hockney recovered from a minor stroke, he decided to paint portraits of his friends. The result is "82 Portraits and 1 Still-life," an exhibit now on view at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

“There is nothing except the canvas, the artist, his gaze, and you,” says Stephanie Barron, a curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. “That’s it. The rest of the world just fades away.”
