About the author

David Hockney, geb. 1937 in England, ist einer der bedeutendsten zeitgenössischen Künstler. Der Wahlkalifornier, der in jungen Jahren die britische Kunstszene aufrüttelte, wird zu den Pionieren der Pop Art gezählt. Durch seine Auseinandersetzung mit den Möglichkeiten der Kamera gilt Hockney heute als Erneuerer der Fotokunst. Neben Gemälden schuf der Künstler eine große Anzahl von Zeichnungen, Radierungen und Bühnenbildern.
