imagine... - Hockney, the Queen and the Royal Peculiar

Really fascinating watch this, David Hockney was asked to create a stain glass window for Westminster Abbey in celebration of the Queen’s 65 years reign. It captures the man himself in the many stages of the project and it’s astonishing seeing how the Barley Studio, specialists in this craft, went about making such a large-scale stain glass window. It looks beautiful, a contemporary and very much Hockney-esque vision inside what is an otherwise ancient and traditional place. I must go see it in person!
