"Never Worry What the Neighbors Think" was the philosophy that Kenneth Hockney used to inspire his children-David, one of the world's greatest living artists, and siblings John, Paul, Philip, and Margaret-to each choose their own route in life.
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 to their diverse lives across three continents. Hardship, success, 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 artist's work that continues to inspire generations across the world.
