In this classic book, one of the most critically acclaimed and universally popular artists of modern times describes his life and work from the mid-1970s to the 1990s. David Hockney has forged a new way of seeing through an intense exploration of a variety of forms. Working in almost every mediumpainting, drawing, stage design, photography, and printmakinghe has stretched the boundaries of all of them.
Hockney has undertaken a singular and ambitious experiment with ways of seeing and ways of representing sight: ranging from his paintings, with their challenges to perspective and brilliant colors, to his vivid multidimensional photo-collages and his fax art, computer printings, and colored laser prints.
