David Hockney's Dog Days
'Lovely ... sure to delight both dog lovers and David Hockney fans. 10/10' -Your Dog
A charming book featuring David Hockney's paintings and drawings of his two dachshunds, Stanley and Boodgie.
'From September 1993, I painted and drew my dogs. This took a certain amount of planning, since dogs are generally not interested in Art (I say generally only because I have now come across a singing dog). Food and love dominate their lives.
'I make no apologies for the apparent subject matter. These two dear little creatures are my friends. They are intelligent, loving, comical, and often bored. They watch me work; I notice the warm shapes they make together, their sadness and their delights. And, being Hollywood dogs, they somehow seem to know that a picture is being made.' - David Hockney
The perfect gift for Hockney fans and dog lovers everywhere, David Hockney's Dog Days, now in a gift edition, is an album devoted to two of the artist's closest friends, his dachshunds Stanley and Boodgie. This beautiful and engaging book includes almost all of Hockney's paintings and drawings of his two companions, dozens of new illustrations created specially for this book, and a text by the artist himself.
