Part of the Tate Introduction series, this book is a lively and accessible introduction to the life and work of David Hockney, one of the most popular and influential British artists of the 20th century. It offers a concise and engaging account of Hockney's life, his art, and the ongoing debates concerning his significance.
As he approaches his 80th birthday, Hockney continues to change his style and ways of working, embracing new technologies as he goes. From his images of Los Angeles swimming pools, through to his Yorkshire landscapes and most recent paintings, his art has questioned how the world of movement, space and time can be captured in two dimensions.
Helen Little is Assistant Curator, Modern and Contemporary British Art at Tate Britain.
