See exciting new works created by David Hockney during a burst of intense creativity at his home in Normandy during the start of the Covid-19 pandemic when most of Europe was in lockdown.

Charting the unfolding and progression of spring, David Hockney: The Arrival of Spring, Normandy, 2020, celebrates the natural world and urges people to "love life" during this disconcerting period.
