One of the most important living painters in the world
David Hockney is considered one of the most important living painters in the world, and his work is unanimously acclaimed by critics and public. In this book it becomes evident that Hockney, besides being an artist, is also a learned man with wise and incisive opinions concerning art and the act of creation.
This volume collects a decade of conversations between the artist and a renowned critic of art, Martin Gayford, in which Hockney reveals through his thoughts, anecdotes and a good deal of humour the fruits of his reflections throughout his life concerning the problems and paradoxes derived from trying to represent the three-dimensional world on a flat surface.
These conversations are riddled with shrewd and wise reflections about the world of art and go through the work of artists such as Van Gogh, Vermeer, Caravaggio, Monet or Picasso, and at the same time include juicy anecdotes of Hockney with other artists he has met throughout his life, such as Henri Cartier-Bresson or Billy Wilder. A unique and extraordinary portrait (almost a self-portrait) of one of the most acclaimed and influential artists of all time.
