Author(s): David Hockney
This much acclaimed book, newly available in paperback, is the definitive retrospective of the most popular serious artist in the world today, covering all media over almost fifty years. Presented thematically to show the evolution and diversity of Hockney's prolific paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints and photography, it also features quotes from the artist himself that illuminate the passionate thinking behind the works produced. Its huge international success confirms Hockney's position as the world's most popular living artist.
David Hockney is Britain's most celebrated living artist and one of the most popular artists at work in the world today. His pieces are in the permanent collections of major museums internationally, and his book Secret Knowledge, which was reissued in a revised and updated edition in 2006, turned art history on its head.
