'Six decades of memorable beloved images reflecting revolutions in our social and emotional landscape, Hockney's never-ending quest for innovative pictorial possibilities of representation, and the renewable triumphs of paint in the hands of a modern master.' - The FT

David Hockney at Tate Britain

This full career retrospective of one of the greatest and most popular living artists accompanies a major exhibition at London's Tate Britain, the Met and Centre Pompidou.  The book reasserts Hockney as a serious thinker and a highly innovative artist constantly challenging the conventions of artistic expression, without losing the characteristic verve, humour and colour of the work.

Showcasing over 200 works (including painting, drawings, photographs, watercolours, iPad drawings, and his most recent multi-screen works) from across the six decades of his remarkable career, the book will delight existing fans of the artist, while giving new audiences the fullest possible introduction to his life and work.
