Hockney revelations

At the National Portrait Gallery in 1995 I overheard a visitor inform her companion that Celia Birtwell (muse and model for several portraits on display) was "probably Hockney's wife".

Today's eavesdropping at the Royal Academy brings news that "houses in Yorkshire aren't that colour".

We live and learn.

    Just seen it at the RA - my problem is that I've never seen purple mud. In Yorkshire.
