David Hockney - Moving FocusAbrams Books
Of course, this new book about David Hockney speaks to us because of its gorgeous color and iconic depictions of Los Angeles, but also because it sheds light on the artist’s boundary-busting exploration of class and sexuality that still manages to resonate with younger generations of viewers.
This book features over a hundred of these paintings, prints, drawings and photographs, helping the reader to understand the artist’s changing sources of inspiration. Covering his famous depictions of cityscapes, it also looks at Hockney’s much-loved portraits from the 1970s and his discovery of a new way of dealing with time, space and perspective he called ‘Moving Focus’.
The book features new texts and responses to his work by established and emerging voices from the worlds of art, design, literature and performance.
