LOS ANGELES INFORMATION

When David Hockney first flew into L.A. he was amazed to see that every home had it's own swimming pool and this prompted him to paint the now famous series of pool paintings. L.A. has always had its opulence and outrageous wealth and hand in hand with that came it's fair share of crime. It is high-energy living - going with the flow can tire you in hours, but by far the most obvious draw is Hollywood and then along the coast the plush and exclusive citadels of Beverly Hills and Malibu. The City of Los Angeles, also known as L.A. or informally as the City of Angels, is the second-largest city in the United States and the seventh largest in the world in terms of population, and is considered the largest metropolitan area in the world with an area of 14,070 sq. miles.
