So that's how they did it!,

This review is from: Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the Lost Techniques of the Old Masters (Hardcover)
For me, Hockney's theories answer a lot of my wonder about works of art and artists, and it's a thoroughly good read, whether you paint/draw or simply admire art.
What I would say is that I'd thoroughly recommend trying to recreate the techniques Hockey illustrates, so you can fully admire the technical achievements of those pioneering artists, whose aims were often very different in the time before the invention of the camera.
An excellent book, well researched and well written - will be debated by art scholars for years to come!
