One of David Hockney's favourite and most frequent sayings is 'Love life ', and for nearly fifty years his art has been feted across the world because it is a celebration of what it is to be alive. All of his pictures - sometimes tender, as when he draws friends and family; sometimes playful, as in his paintings of lazy, carefree days in the pool; sometimes awe-inspiring, as with his images of the Grand Canyon - convey what it means to be in the world: to see it, to move in it, to love it. For Hockney, pictures are the perfect vehicles for communicating such feelings, and his life has been a constant exploration of how to make them in ever more vital ways. With over 320 illustrations, this is the first-ever 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and diversity of Hockney's prolific paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints and photography, including new and unpublished works, it also features quotes from the artist himself that illuminate the passionate thinking behind the works produced.

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.

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.

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.

Ever since he made his first portraits and self-portraits at the age of sixteen, David Hockney has been fascinated by people and how they have been represented throughout the history of art. As much as any other artist in recent years he has embraced, invigorated and often subverted traditional portraiture, making it a central concern of his art. Through a careful selection of works both iconic and previously unpublished, this book explores the many ways in which Hockney has depicted the people around him, be they famous names such as Andy Warhol, Christopher Isherwood and W. H. Auden or lifelong friends. It tells the story of the artist’s relationships with family, friends and lovers, illustrated by works ranging from the intimate and frequently moving studies of his parents and partners to his very recent large-scale double portraits in watercolour. Revealing and always touching, 'Hockney’s portraits and people' is both a unique record of the life and loves of one of the world’s best-known artists and a valuable glimpse of the moment when life and art meet.

Now available in a new edition, this lavishly illustrated book captures the grand scale and vibrant color of David Hockney's work of the 21st century. In the past decade, having returned to England after years on the California coast, David Hockney has focused his attention on landscapes and portraits, as well as still lifes, all the while maintaining his fascination with digital technology. The resulting work is an extravagance of color and light, ranging in dimension from billboard- to letter-size. This lush and impeccably produced book features more than 200 full-color works of art from museum collections and Hockney's private studio, including such major recent works as The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate Wood and Bigger Yosemite. It also includes illustrations of some of his iPad drawings and self-portraits, along with film stills from the artist's "Cubist" movies. Hockney's own insight into this latest chapter of his career is found in his illuminating essay on perspective and is accompanied by thoughtful commentaries by renowned critic Lawrence Weschler and art historian Sarah Howgate.
