This new edition includes a revised introduction and five new chapters which cover Hockney s production since 2011, including preparations for the Bigger Picture exhibition held at the Royal Academy in 2012 and the making of Hockney s iPad drawings and plans for the show. A difficult period followed the exhibition s huge success, marked first by a stroke, which left Hockney unable to speak for a long period, followed by the vandalism of the artist s Totem tree-trunk, and the tragic suicide of his assistant shortly thereafter. Escaping the gloom, in spring 2013 Hockney moved back to L.A. A few months later, Martin Gayford visited Hockney in the L.A. studio, where the fully-recovered artist was hard at work on his Comedie humaine, a series of full-length portraits painted in the studio.

A picture, says David Hockney, is the only way that we can communicate what we see. Here, in a collaboration with art critic Martin Gayford, he explores the many ways that artists have pictured the world, sharing sparkling insights and ideas that will delight every art lover and art maker. Readers who thrilled to Hockney s "Secret Knowledge" know that he has an uncanny ability to get into the minds of artists. In "A History of Pictures" he covers far more ground, getting at the roots of visual expression and technique through hundreds of images from cave paintings to frames from movies that are reproduced. It s a joyful celebration of one of humanity s oldest impulses."

"Lawrence Weschler's portrait of David Hockney is intimate, playful, and intellectually provocative. Beginning with an essay on Hockney's complex and ravishing photo collages, Weschler chronicles the artist's protean production and speculations: his scenic designs for opera, his homemade xerographic prints, his exploration of physics and its relation to Chinese landscape painting, his gripping investigations of the possibility that the old masters deployed optical devices - cameras - in their painting, his taking up of watercolor, and then, in what may be his most sumptuously productive phase yet, his spectacular return to oil painting, about 2004, with a series of vivid landscapes of the East Yorkshire countryside of his youth. These conversations provide an astonishing record of what has been Hockney's grand endeavor, nothing less than an extended exploration of "the structure of seeing" itself."--BOOK JACKET.
