Now available in a new edition, this lavishly illustrated book captures the grand scale and vibrant color of David Hockney's work of the 21st century. In the past decade, having returned to England after years on the California coast, David Hockney has focused his attention on landscapes and portraits, as well as still lifes, all the while maintaining his fascination with digital technology. The resulting work is an extravagance of color and light, ranging in dimension from billboard- to letter-size. This lush and impeccably produced book features more than 200 full-color works of art from museum collections and Hockney's private studio, including such major recent works as The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate Wood and Bigger Yosemite. It also includes illustrations of some of his iPad drawings and self-portraits, along with film stills from the artist's "Cubist" movies. Hockney's own insight into this latest chapter of his career is found in his illuminating essay on perspective and is accompanied by thoughtful commentaries by renowned critic Lawrence Weschler and art historian Sarah Howgate.
