A History of Pictures: From the Cave to the Computer Screen

A History of Pictures: From the Cave to the Computer Screen


In this innovative book, artist David Hockney and art critic Martin Gayford discuss how and why pictures have been made, privileging no medium, period or style.

Brilliantly original, each of the sixteen chapters addresses the important question of what happens when we attempt to express reality in two dimensions.

“Gives readers the sensation of eavesdropping on an enlightening conversation.” - Rachel Spence, Financial Times.
