David Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.

Born in Bradford, England, in 1937, Hockney attended art school in London before moving to Los Angeles in the 1960s. There, he painted his famous swimming pool paintings. In a 2011 poll of more than 1,000 British artists, Hockney was voted the most influential British artist of all time. He continues to create and exhibit art.. This much acclaimed book, newly available in paperback, is the definitive retrospective of the most popular serious artist in the world today, covering all media over almost fifty years.

Hockney. This hefty, soft-backed volume provides a perfect overview of David Hockney`s oeuvre, from his student work up till 2002. The work is loosely grouped in chapters according to subject matter, approach, etc., with examples of his work in all media - drawing, photography, print-making, stage design and - of course - painting. With 325 illustrations and minimal text, the book is very competitively priced; I`ve owned this for some time now and take it out to my painting class fairly regularly for the benefit of my students - very often one work by Hockney explains what I would be at pains to put into words and it saves me having to do a time-consuming demonstration. It`s inspirational benefits should be self-evident. This is an excellent reference volume, ideal for keeping in the studio or on your coffee table; an easy five star recommendation.
