History of Pictures: From the Cave to the Computer Screen
This new, compact edition of History of Pictures by David Hockney and Martin Gayford explores how and why pictures have been made throughout history, asking big questions about the relationships between painters and photography. This latest version includes a revised final chapter and three entirely new Hockney artworks.
Drawing on Hockney’s lifetime of expertise in painting and Gayford’s informed knowledge as an art critic, this enlightening book poses intriguing questions such as what makes marks on a flat surface interesting? How do you show movement in a still picture, and how can films and television connect with old masters?
Comparing an eclectic mix of imagery, such as a Disney cartoon with a Hiroshige Japanese woodblock print, and a scene from an Eisenstein film with a Velázquez painting, this book is an important look at how we interpret our reality.
