David Hockney and the Yorkshire Wolds,
This review is from: David Hockney: A Bigger Picture (PAL with Subtitles) (DVD)
I'm not an art critic, I bought this DVD primarily because I originate from the Yorkshire Wolds and have been fascinated by David Hockneys paintings of my childhood stomping ground. What I did not expect to see was such an amazing insight into the life of a true living legend. I am still completely bowled over by Bruno Wollheims portrayal of this most unusual, enigmatic but above all passionate artist. Thanks to Bruno's dedication for sticking with what must have been an extemely trying assignment and to David Hockney for giving the public a rare opportunity to see him at work. I give the DVD top marks and quite frankly look forward to watching it again.
If anyone is interested in Hockeys pictures of Woldgate and the surrounding area of Bridlington, I highly recommend this book, which is written in both German and English. 'David Hockney - Just Nature' ISBN 978-3-89929-154-4

I bought the DVD and the amazing book A Bigger Picture because I was lucky enough to see this life changing and awe inspiring exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. Even though I spent hours at the exhibition, my senses could barely take in the beautiful colours, lights and overall splendour of the paintings, in oil and watercolour, on giant canvases, watercolours and on IPads. David Hockney just gets better and better. The book and the DVD are fantastic tasters for the talent and genius of David Hockney. Pure inspiring beauty, colour and light!
