About this artwork

In 1969, Godfrey Argent snapped this amazing photo portrait of the modern British artist David Hockney. Normally, Argent was known to take royal photos, usually in a formal style using black and white. But for this one, he decided to have some fun and set up Hockney in an art deco chair, getting a low angle shot to bring out his famous blonde hair and glasses. Plus, when you buy this, you’re also supporting the National Portrait Gallery.

About the artist

Known for his iconic monochrome portraits of high society figures, Godfrey Argent (1937-2006) was an esteemed English photographer. He started his career in photography while serving in the Household Cavalry, eventually becoming a favored portraitist for royalty, including a young Prince of Wales and Princess Anne. In 1960, his talent was recognised when he became an Associate Member of the Royal Photographic Society and winner of the British Army Photographic Competition.

Argent took over the business of well known portraitist Walter Bird in 1967, and it wasn't long before he was appointed the official photographer for the National Portrait Gallery's National Photographic Record. Also holding the position of official photographer for the Royal Society, he had a steady gig taking portraits of the ever-changing cast of The Mousetrap. In honor of Argent's significant contributions to photography, a namesake award was established in 2007 to support the careers of aspiring photographers.
