Catalogue de l'exposition "David Hockney, A Bigger Picture" présentée à la Royal Academy, Londres (21 janvier - 9 avril 2012), puis au Guggenheim Museum de Bilbao, Espagne (15 mai - 30 septembre 2012).

Publication en anglais. Plusieurs textes critiques, dont une introduction de Marco Livingstone, examinent le lien profond de David Hockney avec la peinture de paysage au regard de son illustre carrière. Des contributeurs renommés tels Margaret Drabble, Tim Barringer, Martin Gayford, Xavier Salomon et David Hockney lui-même, abordent la place de l'artiste dans la tradition de la peinture de paysage, ses récents travaux vidéographiques, ainsi que son intérêt pour les nouvelles technologies.


Although closely associated with Pop Art and California, where he has lived for much of his life, the forthcoming exhibition and accompanying catalogue redefine David Hockney RA as an important painter of the English countryside. The exhibition David Hockney RA, A Bigger Picture presents, for the first time, his recent landscape paintings of the Yorkshire Wolds.

In the last decade Hockney has returned to painting in the open air, observing with honesty and intensity the scenery remembered from school holidays spent in East Yorkshire. These works convey the drama and splendour of nature and the pathos of our relationship with it, an age-old subject treated by Hockney with a modern eye, often informed by his interest in photography and digital media. Edith Devaney, curator, says Hockney has become "so close to the changing seasons and light, so attuned, that he'll get up at 4am to catch the light. He calls the time when the blossom comes out 'action week'." 

The exhibition will also present a number of Hockney's works painted from the Fifties onwards.These include the photo-collages of the Eighties and Grand Canyon paintings of the late Nineties which put the Yorkshire works in context and highlight the striking relationship between past works and his current thinking and practice.

Illustrated with paintings, charcoal drawings, iPad drawings and video stills, many of which have never been seen before, this landmark publication confirms David Hockney RA as one of the greatest artists of his generation.
