Tate Introductions: David Hockney Paperback
by HELEN LITTLE
A lively and accessible introduction to the life and work of David Hockney, one of the most popular and influential British artists of the 20th century.
As he approaches his 80th birthday, Hockney continues to change his style and ways of working, embracing new technologies as he goes.
From his portraits and images of Los Angeles swimming pools, through to his drawings and photography, Yorkshire landscapes and most recent paintings, his art has examined, probed and questioned how the perceived world of movement, space and time can be captured in two dimensions.
Part of the Tate Introduction series, this book offers a concise and engaging account of Hockney's life, his art, and the ongoing debates concerning his significance.
