The Queen's Window by David Hockney
An enchanting book exploring the designing and making of The Queen's Window in Westminster Abbey
The Queen's Window was designed by renowned artist David Hockney for Westminster Abbey and unveiled in autumn 2018. The work was commissioned to celebrate the reign of Queen Elizabeth II as England's longest-serving monarch. The resulting design is a vibrantly coloured and quintessentially English country scene featuring a Yorkshire landscape with the hawthorn blossom that Hockney loves.
In an extended conversation between Hockney and fellow-artist Tacita Dean, the artist reflects on his approach to the design and his use of colour, as well on the underlying themes that the window represents.
