David Hockney is so brilliant - his work transcents pretty much everything. It is clever, humorous, well crafted, thought provoking and honest. Plus just gorgeous to look at. And I'll admit, I mostly looked at the pictures, but the text I read was just as enlightening. I will tuck in over the winter months with this one and a sketchbook and make all sorts of notes.

Reading this book is like having the hyper smart younger version of your kindly grandfather tell you why it is OK to enjoy making the work you make.
I like the paintings of David Hockney. It's interesting to read is take on art and art history. It sure beats a dry textbook!

David Hockney was born in Bradford, England, on July 9, 1937. He loved books and was interested in art from an early age, admiring Picasso, Matisse and Fragonard. His parents encouraged their son’s artistic exploration, and gave him the freedom to doodle and daydream.

Hockney attended the Bradford College of Art from 1953 to 1957. Then, because he was a conscientious objector to military service, h
