Martha's Vineyard: My Third Sketchbook from the Summer of 1982

by David Hockney

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Sketchbooks are intriguing visual records; they can reveal the inspirational sources of an artist's finished works. A travel sketchbook offered in facsimile reproduction can illuminate much about its creator. This volume is replete with the sort of witty anecdotal scenes that have made Hockney one of today's most important representational painters. A cogent artist's statement is also made in a booklet produced for this publication. Hockney records his personal feelings about sketchbooks and the creative processes they capture. Martha's Vineyard really serves as a jumping-off point for pen and color vignettes of interiors, friends' faces, random still lifes, and slumberous island views. However, the price and specialized focus of this facsimile will limit its acquisition to libraries actively serving artists and modern art scholars. Paula A.
