Picking up Hockney's story in 1975, Sykes's biography finds the artist moving between London and California, creating the swimming pool paintings and set designs for opera, and embracing new technologies, from cameras and fax machines to the iPad. Drawing on unprecedented access to Hockney's paintings, notebooks and diaries, many of which are reproduced here, and interviews with friends, family and Hockney himself, Sykes has written a lively and revelatory account of this influential and much-loved artist.
