This book presents a clear, critical analysis of the key developments in Hockney's work since the mid - 1960s. Topics examined include Hockney's participation in the London arts scene of the "swinging 60s", his images of Southern California, images of landscapes, Hockney's questioning of the status of the modern art object, the conjunction of word and image in his work, his practice as a portrait painter, and finally the paintings of the 1990s. Throughout, the chapters reflect a diverse range of contemporary theoretical positions and methodologies, contributing to the critical debate around Hockney's work.
