Hans Werner Holzwarth and David Hockney

David Hockney is a pop artist, painter of modern life and landscape, master of color, and explorer of image and perception. He is known for finding new ways to explore the world and the possibilities of representing it.

He has consistently created unforgettable images: works with graphic lines and integrated text during the Swinging Sixties in London; the famous swimming pool series as a representation of the 1970s California lifestyle; closely observed portraits and brightly colored, oversized landscapes after his eventual return to his native Yorkshire.

He has also made drawings by transferring what he sees directly onto paper as well as multiperspective Polaroid collages that open up space into many detailed views. His recent work captures light using a most modern medium-iPad drawings-a testament to Hockney's enduring delight in experimentation. This special edition combines the two volumes of the David Hockney: A Bigger Book monograph to celebrate TASCHEN's 40th anniversary. Hockney's life and work is published year by year as a dialogue between his works and voices from the time period. This is presented alongside reviews and reflections from the artist in a chronological text and supplemented with portrait and exhibition photographs. These pages reveal how Hockney undertakes his artistic research, how his multifaceted works develop, and where he finds inspiration.
