David Hockney

James Cahill


David Hockney is the most famous living British artist. Emerging from the north of England in the 1960s, he made quite a splash in Swinging London as a portraitist, and went on to make an even bigger splash in Los Angeles when he moved there in the 1970s. By the beginning of the millennium, he had returned to his Yorkshire roots, embarking on a new period of painting and capping a truly remarkable career. This book brings his spectacular life together into one short, sweet volume.
