Secret Knowledge, Paperback Book


This is the book that turned the art world on its head, now with new and exciting discoveries.

Hockney takes his thesis further, demonstrating how Renaissance artists used mirrors and lenses to develop perspective and chiaroscuro radically challenging our view of how these two foundations of Western art were established.
