The World According to David Hockney

Sale price€17,95
A collection of insights into art, life, nature, creativity, and more from legendary British artist David Hockney.

"I’ve always been a looker . . . that’s what artists do."

This anthology of quotations by the artist David Hockney follows in the successful format of The World According to series. Ranging across topics including drawing, photography, nature, creativity, the Internet, and much more, The World According to David Hockney offers a delightful and engaging overview of the artist’s inimitable spirit, personality, and opinions.

From everyday observations―"The eye is always moving; if it isn’t moving you are dead"―to artistic insights such as "painted color always will be better than printed color, because it is the pigment itself," as well as musings on other image makers, including Caravaggio, Paul Cézanne, and Walt Disney, David Hockney has a knack for capturing profound truths in pithy statements.

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, and since then has embraced a range of media, including photocollage, video, and digital technologies. In a 2011 poll of more than one thousand British artists, Hockney was voted the most influential British artist of all time.

Presented as a beautifully designed and attractive package, illustrated with works of art from throughout Hockney’s career, this is the perfect gift for art lovers everywhere.
