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.

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!
