Inspiration for David Hockney

Betty Freeman was the inspiration for the David Hockney painting “Beverly Hills Housewife” (1966), a 12-foot double canvas that shows the pink-sheathed collector on her patio, flanked by a zebra-print lounge chair and an abstract sculpture. The painting was recently on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
