David Hockney has, in some ways been the victim of his own popularity. Frequently interpreted as the lightweight expression of a colourful personality, his work is characterized by an underlying seriousness of purpose. Each of the volumes's six chapters, broadly chronological in sequence is introduced by an essay that examines in depth certain aspects of Hockney's artistic practice. The complexity of his imagery is further elucidated in the commentaries accompanying each of the colour plates. These encompass the period from 1960 to 1993, from work produced during the artist's student days at the Royal College of Art in London to his most recent paintings, enriched through his experience of designing for the stage and by his experiments with photo-collage and fax art.

Although many will not be familiar with the great artists included in this volume, Caspar David Friedrich, Lovis Corinth, and Max Klinger are well-known names whose works form the core of the permenant collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Liepzig, Germany. The 84 paintings here reproduced in this sumptuously illustrated volume provide a rare opportunity to learn about these masters and their influence, especially between 1840 and 1880, when Germany had a profound impact on artistic life in America.
