Critical Review

Considering the uninhibited exposure of the naked male body in the picture, the portrait can be seen to represent one of Hockney’s boldest takes on the subject of intimacy and same-sex desire. Located against a plain background and at the very forefront of the print, the male body here holds a special presence. Given the minimalism of the scene, the viewer is encouraged to focus attention entirely on the implicit eroticism and intimacy conveyed by the image of Evan’s reclining body. Hockney and Evans’ friendship continues until today and the artist’s extensive exhibition 82 Portraits And 1 Still-life at the Royal Academy in 2016 featured Gregory in a large-size, acrylic painting.
