Humiliation in life, art after death

Tyler Green's article about David Hockney's return to England is linked here. According to this article, the landscape of Hockney's art is now Yorkshire rather than California because Immigration and Customs Enforcement won't allow his partner to enter the United States.

England is the country that drove Alan Turing to suicide because his sexuality was like Hockney's, but here's its Alan Turing postage stamp by way of art in the aftermath.
