David Hockney is one of the most distinctive of modern artists, whose bright, accessible work is instantly recognizable and massively popular. For the first time, he has allowed a biographer access to his notebooks, and sanctioned interviews with himself, his family and his friends. This well-illustrated first volume covers the artist's Bradford upbringing, his studies at the Royal College, his Hollywood years, and his friendships with Ossie Clark, Celia Birtwell and Christopher Isherwood.
