Description
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 to the more recent works that have contributed to Hockney's international reputation. These include his photocollages and highly acclaimed stage designs for the opera, not to mention his embrace of technology - namely the fax drawings and color laser prints - which show the continuing preoccupation with invention and artifice that has made the artist's work at once popular and enduring. David Hockney has enjoyed greater popularity internationally than any other British artist this century. This book, published to coincide a major retrospective of Hockney's drawings at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, investigates the relationship between Hockney's art and his life, and charts the shift in Hockney's exuberant work from the early 1950s to his most recent explorations in paintings, drawings, and prints. 181 illustrations, 65 in color.
