First time to market — a selection of rare works by David Hockney, who has been described as the most popular and versatile British artist of the 20th century, producing works in media as diverse as painting, drawing, printmaking, and photography. Hockney stuck resolutely to figurative painting and drawing at a time when abstraction dominated the art world. His portraits are considered by many to be his finest work: grandly scaled, yet intimate. LAMA is pleased to offer twenty-one paintings, drawings, and prints by Hockney in its February 21, 2016 auction of Fine Art & Design.

The actor and playwright Jack Larson and film director and writer James Bridges were gentlemen of the old school–talented, creative, cultured, thoughtful, generous, and supportive of each other and of their friends. They found each other and made a life together in a different Hollywood era. Together they supported budding artists in the Los Angeles art scene from the early 1960s through the 1980s. On February 21, 2016, LAMA will offer a selection of fine art and design from their personal collection, in addition to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Sturges Residence (1939), all of which will be sold to benefit the Bridges/Larson Foundation.
