David Hockney is as fascinating as he is articulate on ways of seeing, and in this impressive book he leads us on an artistic journey where anything is possible. He considers the influence of Picasso and Rembrandt and speaks of Eastern conventions and their relevance to his work. He points to Laurel and Hardy's lasting appeal in his conviction that popularity and art are not incompatible. Hockney and his work have long been the subjects of controversy—few 20th century artists have so successfully surmounted their cult image for three decades; yet and he remains one of our most relentlessly dedicated, versatile, and original painters.

Born in 1937 in Bradford, David Hockney has become one of the most celebrated of modern artists. His 1997 London Exhibition, Faces and Spaces' and his 1999 Paris exhibition have indicated how fresh and fertile his imagination continues to be.From Library Journal:
Over the past 20 years, British artist Hockney (b. 1937) and filmmaker Joyce have engaged in a series of in-depth conversations on art, the creative process, and the way we see the world. From Cubism and the lie of perspective, to the memory and magic of art, these interviews follow Hockney's artistic journey from his early paintings to the photomontages, or "joiners," as he calls them, of the 1980s and 1990s, to his more recent return to painting and stage design. Although "Hockney on His Art" would have been a more appropriate title for this volume, this is a fascinating look at the deep aesthetic that informs this artist's oeuvre. Illustrated with 180 works of art (150 in color), this book is recommended for most art collections.
