Synopsis: This book presents a clear, critical analysis of the key developments in Hockney's work since the mid - 1960s. Topics examined include Hockney's participation in the London arts scene of the "swinging 60s", his images of Southern California, images of landscapes, Hockney's questioning of the status of the modern art object, the conjunction of word and image in his work, his practice as a portrait painter, and finally the paintings of the 1990s. Throughout, the chapters reflect a diverse range of contemporary theoretical positions and methodologies, contributing to the critical debate around Hockney's work.
From the Back Cover: David Hockney is perhaps the most widely celebrated artist of recent decades, producing work in almost every medium - painting, drawing, photography, and printmaking - as well as designing critically acclaimed sets for the stage. David Hockney: A Drawing Retrospective brings together for the first time an exciting selection of Hockney's work on paper and in sketchbooks, presenting many drawings that have never been reproduced before - including several from the artist's personal collection. Spanning his entire career, from 1954 to the present, these images show how drawing lies at the very heart of Hockney's work, a fundamental aspect of his graphic approach to every medium. Among the pieces reproduced here are portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and images of California and the other places Hockney has visited, together with subjects that reveal more personal aspects of the artist's life. Authoritative essays by Ulrich Luckhardt and Paul Melia, curators of the first major retrospective of Hockney's drawings in fifteen years, examine the artist's skills as a draftsman, presenting a chronological view of his evolving style and technique, and placing the drawings in the context of his work as a whole. Biographical notes and a select bibliography are also included, making David Hockney: A Drawing Retrospective an invaluable source of reference as well as a beguiling and dazzling compendium of drawings by one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.
