David Hockney's beloved East Yorkshire landscape is the star of the Royal Academy's Spring blockbuster.

The artist has done for the region what Constable did for Suffolk, says Co-curator Edith Devany, who intends that the exhibition will place Hockney firmly in the great British landscape tradition. Hockney was a couple of years into a concentrated period of work on the Yorkshire landscape when the Academy made its approach in 2007, offering him the run of the institution's large exhibition spaces.

Don't miss

The 150 works on display include paintings, sketches, photo montages and blown-up prints of works created on the artist's iPad. Taking centre stage is a series of large landscapes in oil, including the 15-canvas Winter Timber (2009), which hangs over six metres wide, and four large paintings of the seasons made in 2007 and 2008.
