Hockney, noted to be Britain's favourite artist has produced some fantastic works in his life so far.
Hockney's Pictures offers a beautiful insight into some of his greatest works. Divided into different sections of his art, the quality of the prints are amazing. I recently visited Nottingham Contemporary to see a selection of the images in person, and was surprised by the depth of colour and precision of the images in the book.
The Portrait section is the definite winner for me. The loose pencil sketches, paintings and line drawings all seem fresh from Hockney's hand. The painted work in particular have a living glow, and i do feel the works are looking out from the paper.
A Definite buy for anyone wanting a collection of Hockney's work in a perfectly sized book with minimal but valued text.
