Overview

David Hockney—one of the most celebrated pop artists of all time—offers a fascinating and articulate investigation of the art world in this impressive critical review. Hockney and his work have long been the subjects of controversy and critical debate, and he remains one of the century’s most relentlessly dedicated, versatile, and original painters. In his conversations with filmmaker Paul Joyce, collected in this volume, he lays bare the thought processes of the artist at work. Along with overviews on the art world as a whole, he also discusses the motives behind his own art. He explains the influence of Picasso and Rembrandt as well as Eastern conventions and perspective on his work, as well as Laurel and Hardy's lasting appeal in his conviction that popularity and art are not incompatible. Beautifully illustrated, this is a rare insight into the thought-processes and working life of a truly distinguished artist.
