Details

David Hockney’s own experience and insights inform this discussion of the nature of art and artistic representations. Crossing media from old master paintings to photography, film and television, this highly illustrated volume is presented as a conversation between Hockney and art critic Martin Gayford. They consider topics such as truth, naturalism and deception and, continuing the theme of Hockney’s book Secret Knowledge, the role of mirrors, reflections and lenses in creating images.
