David Hockney is recognised as among the most influential and versatile British artists of the past century, and arguably the country’s greatest living painter. Born in 1937 he has spent his life dedicated to drawing, oil painting, printmaking, set design and photocollage, and more recently has extended his practice into watercolour, charcoal, multi-screen video installation, and digital drawing with the embrace of touchscreen technology.
David Hockney: Current is a new landmark publication exploring the artist’s oeuvre and works over the past decade. This major and illustrated volume includes engaging and informative essays by Simon Maidment, Barbara Bolt, Edith Devaney, Martin Gayford and Li Bowen, and is accompanied by a selection of David Hockney’s extraordinary works. A full catalogue raisonné of Hockney’s iPhone and iPad drawings, totalling more than 1500 works, is presented in this volume for the first time.
