The making of pictures has a history going back perhaps 100,000 years to an African shell used as a paint palette. Two-thirds of it is irrevocably lost, since the earliest images known to us are from about 40,000 years ago. But what a 40,000 years, explored here by David Hockney and Martin Gayford in a brilliantly original book. They privilege no medium, or period, or style, but instead, in 16 chapters, discuss how and why pictures have been made, and insistently link 'art' to human skills and human needs. Each chapter addresses an important question: What happens when we try to express reality in two dimensions? Why is the 'Mona Lisa' beautiful and why are shadows so rarely found in Chinese, Japanese and Persian painting? Why are optical projections always going to be more beautiful than HD television can ever be? How have the makers of images depicted movement? What makes marks on a flat surface interesting? Energized by two lifetimes of looking at pictures, combined with a great artist's 70-year experience of experimentation as he makes them, this profoundly moving and enlightening volume will be the art book of the decade.

The story of David Hockney, one of the most widely acclaimed of all living artists, is one of passion: passion for seeing, passion for telling, passion for images. But to these should be added the passion for life. Hockney's art is a celebration of what it is to be alive. All of his pictures-sometimes tender, as when he draws close friends and family; sometimes playful, as in his paintings of lazy, carefree days at the pool; sometimes awe-inspiring, as with his monumental images of the Grand Canyon-convey what it means to be in the world, to see it, to move in it, to love it. This constant exploration of how to communicate such feelings through his work emerges with particular clarity in this stunning, lively volume, which charts almost fifty years of extraordinary creativity. Hockney's Pictures is the first definitive "retrospective" to show the evolution and diversity of Hockney's prolific paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints, and photography, including new and published works. The pieces, presented thematically, are selected and organized by David Hockney himself, and track Hockney's lifelong experiments in ways of looking and depicting. With 325 illustrations, accompanied by extensive quotes from the artist himself that illuminate the passionate thinking behind the work, Hockney's Pictures is destined to become a classic. David Hockney is Britain's most celebrated living artist and one of the most popular artists working today. His pieces are in the permanent collections of major museums internationally, and his book Secret Knowledge was one of the bestselling art books of 2001.

Intelligent, conscientious, sensitive. –Burlington Magazine The relationship between art and life has been of overriding importance in the work of David Hockney, who has perhaps enjoyed greater popularity than any other British artist this century. Here Marco Livingstone traces those connections from the beginning of the artist’s career in the early 1960s through the more recent works that have contributed to Hockney’s international reputation. These include photocollages and highly acclaimed stage designs for the opera as well as his embrace of technology, which show the continuing preoccupation with invention and artifice that has made the artist’s work at once popular and enduring. The fourth edition of this best-selling World of Art title includes updated information on Hockney’s work in the past twenty years, such as his foray into the world of digital art including large-scale iPad drawings and video.

"Lawrence Weschler's portrait of David Hockney is intimate, playful, and intellectually provocative. Beginning with an essay on Hockney's complex and ravishing photo collages, Weschler chronicles the artist's protean production and speculations: his scenic designs for opera, his homemade xerographic prints, his exploration of physics and its relation to Chinese landscape painting, his gripping investigations of the possibility that the old masters deployed optical devices - cameras - in their painting, his taking up of watercolor, and then, in what may be his most sumptuously productive phase yet, his spectacular return to oil painting, about 2004, with a series of vivid landscapes of the East Yorkshire countryside of his youth. These conversations provide an astonishing record of what has been Hockney's grand endeavor, nothing less than an extended exploration of "the structure of seeing" itself."--BOOK JACKET.
