David Hockney by Marco Livingstone( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between art and life has been of overriding importance in the work of David Hockney, who has perhaps enjoyed greater popularity than any other British artist this century. Here Marco Livingstone traces those connections from the beginning of the artist's career in the early 1960s through to the more recent works that have contributed to Hockney's international reputation. These include his photocollages and highly acclaimed stage designs for the opera, not to mention his embrace of technology - namely the fax drawings and color laser prints - which show the continuing preoccupation with invention and artifice that has made the artist's work at once popular and enduring

True to life : twenty-five years of conversations with David Hockney by Lawrence Weschler( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lawrence Weschler's portrait of David Hockney is intimate, playful, and intellectually provocative. Beginning with an essay on Hockney's complex and ravishing photo collages, Weschler chronicles the artist's protean production and speculations: his scenic designs for opera, his homemade xerographic prints, his exploration of physics and its relation to Chinese landscape painting, his gripping investigations of the possibility that the old masters deployed optical devices - cameras - in their painting, his taking up of watercolor, and then, in what may be his most sumptuously productive phase yet, his spectacular return to oil painting, about 2004, with a series of vivid landscapes of the East Yorkshire countryside of his youth. These conversations provide an astonishing record of what has been Hockney's grand endeavor, nothing less than an extended exploration of "the structure of seeing" itself."--BOOK JACKET

Who gets to call it art? the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 by Peter Rosen( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them

'The most remarkable autobiographical work any artist, scientist or man of letters of his generation has written.' Nicholas Phillipson, Times Literary Supplement. 'Hockney tells us in a wonderfully straightforward way about what triggered off most of the paintings and many of the graphics reproduced in this book, and it's so brilliant and account of how his art becomes inextricably involved with life that it amounts to a genuine breakthrough in communication.' Robert Melville, New Statesman. Born in 1937, David Hockney is one of the most popular and successful of living artists. His paintings of California, such as A Bigger Splash (which was used as the title of the controversial feature film - partly fictitious - of his life and work), have become classics of popular imagery. Colourful, frank and decided in his views, he has been lionized by the fashionable wherever he happens to be, and he has become a cult, figure for the young. Recently, his sets and costumes for the Glyndebourne production of Stravinsky's Rake's Progress were enthusiastically acclaimed and, once again, brought him into the limelight of artistic and public attention. And yet, despite all this, Hockney has always remained a totally serious artist. Dedicated, hard-working and private, he has shown an astonishing ability to turn his back on all the fuss, and remain completely unaffected by it. His work shows an extraordinary capacity for renewal and invention, for unexpected new departures. In this witty, candid and revealing account of himself, which is in the tradition of Cellini's Autobiography, he tells of his early years in Bradford, where he was born and grew up, and first went to art school; his years at the Royal College of Art, during which he had his breakthrough and first came to public attention; his sojourn in California, which inspired his best-known paintings, drawings and prints; and his present phase in Paris, where he now lives, and where a recent exhibition at the Louvre established him as a 'Continental master'. What makes this book so fascinating is not only that the entire text is by Hockney himself - so that his life-story is given maximum documentation - but also that it reproduces almost all his paintings and graphic work to date, as well as many of his drawings. In this respect, the book amounts to an oeuvre catalogue, although its structure follows the narrative of Hockney's text and is relatively informal. The story, presented in more or less chronological form, is informative and humorous, full of descriptions of his work, anecdotes about himself, other artists and friends, his thoughts about art, and his ambiguous relationship with abstract and other current art styles. Above all, it is the story not so much of someone who has achieved something and who is happy to rest there, but of an artist who is ceaselessly striving to improve his art, and to learn how to interpret the world around him through his artistry and imagination

Paintings, prints, and drawings, 1960-1970 by David Hockney( Book )

16 editions published in 1970 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is Hockney a painter or a draughtsman? He is both, admirably. His prints and drawings include his most personal, most affectionate statements. His drawing-within-painting is superb and is accompanied by a use of colour and tone that is entirely painterly even if it does without painterly gestures. In any case, he is an acutely visual artist, with a great deal of cunning at his command with which to find the particular pictoral form for a particular thing, incorporating unmistakable feelings in cool and exact images."--Norbert Lynton, in The Guardian
