Summary note
David Hockney (born 1937 in Bradford) is one of the most influential and technically versatile artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. This new publication gathers some of his most defining work from the 1950s to the present, including major works in the Tate collection. From early graphic cycles, iconic pool paintings through to his plein air landscapes, iPad drawings, and multimedia installations, the volume documents central themes and genres in Hockney's oeuvre, as well as his constant experimentation. Original essays by renowned critics and commentators illuminate the artist's search for new forms of expression, the topographical and biographical reference points of his work, the technical innovation of his painting and printmaking, as well as his approach to new media.
