Author(s): TASCHEN (Editor)
This special edition traces David Hockney's work over the course of six decades. We follow his stylistic development and experience how he reinvents himself again and again--from his teenage years at art school to the extensive portrait series, iPad drawings, and landscape paintings of recent years. The volume contains illustrations of all his important works, plus drawings, prints, portrait photos, and exhibition views, as well as a chronological text on his life and work, quoting extensively from contemporary reviews and Hockney's own reflections on art.
