David Hockney by Marco Livingstone( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 585 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
David Hockney : portraits by Marco Livingstone( Book )

25 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most significant artists exploring and pushing the boundaries of figurative art today. Hockney has been engaged with portraiture since his teenage years, when he painted Portrait of my Father (1955), and his self-portraits and depictions of family, lovers, and friends represent an intimate visual diary of the artist's life." "This illustrated book examines Hockney's portraits in all media - painting, drawing, photographs, and prints - and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featured subjects include members of Hockney's family and private circle, as well as portraits of such artists and cultural figures as Lucian Freud, Francesco Clemente, R.B. Kitaj, Helmut Newton, Lawrence Weschler, and W.H. Auden. The authors reveal how Hockney's creative development and concerns about representation can be traced through his portrait work: from his battle with naturalism to his experimentation with and later rejection of photography, and from his recent camera lucida drawings to his return to painting from life in oil." "Featuring more than 250 works from the past fifty years, David Hockney Portraits illustrates not only the fascinating range of Hockney's creative practice but also the unique and cyclical nature of his artistic concerns."--Jacket

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

Six fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm by Jacob Grimm( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm according to David Hockney are like no other version you will have read before. Although inspired by earlier illustrators of the tales, from Arthur Rackham to Edmund Dulac, Hockney's extraordinary etchings re-imagine these strange and supernatural stories for a modern audience, capturing their distinctive atmosphere in a style that is recognisably the artists own. Reprinted for the first time since its original publication in 1969, Hockney's book brings together some well-known tales Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin with others that are less familiar. Informed by great art of the past, attuned to idiosyncrasies of character and incident, and fresh in execution and content, his illustrations invite us to read each one as if for the first time
