A stained glass window by artist David Hockney, based on a design he sketched on an iPad, was unveiled Wednesday amid the marble and monuments of London's ancient Westminster Abbey. The Queen's Window was commissioned to celebrate the long reign of Queen Elizabeth II and depicts a landscape of blossoming hawthorn trees in hues of blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and red.Hall approached Hockney because he is "the most celebrated artist alive" and a British national treasure who has been named by the queen a Companion of Honour, an award limited to 65 people.Hockney created the design evocative of Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall on an iPad, his favorite drawing tool. It's a new medium for Hockney, who in a seven-decade career has embraced drawing, painting, printmaking, photo collage and video.
