This major new exhibition of landscape works by David Hockney will span fifty years of his career, picking out the pieces which demonstrate Hockney's fascination with the depiction of landscape.

The exhibition will also include some of his iPad drawings, and a series of films which were shot on 18 cameras -- creating a spellbinding visual journey on multiple screens.
