Ask Sts to tell you anything they can remember about the painting. Ozzie Clark and Celia were fashion designers and they had a very successful clothes shop in London. In the s they dressed a lot of the famous pop stars of the time including The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. Hockney painted Ozzie and Cecilia a few months after they got married in their flat at Netting Hill in London. He painted them in their bedroom, because he liked the light there, and on the wall on the left of the window you can see one of his own paintings.
Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy is a very big painting, approximately three metres wide and two metres high. The couple are wearing typical ciothes of the late s. Celia is wearing a long dress, and in fact she was expecting a baby at that time. Her husband isn't wearing any shoes, and he is putting his feet into the carpet.
This was because Hockney had a lot of problems painting his feet. Traditionally when a painter paints a married couple, the woman is sitting down and the man is standing up. In this painting the man is sitting and woman Is standing. Usually in a painting the married couple are close together, but in this painting they are separated by a big open window, which symbolizes the distance between them.
The white cat, sitting on Mr Clark, is a symbol of infidelity. It seems that Hockney didn't think that their marriage was going to be very happy and in fact the couple got divorced four years Eater Celia often posed as a model for Hockney, but she says that this painting, his most famous picture of her, is not her favourite.
