A History of Pictures
For us to understand how we see the world around us and hence ourselves what is needed is a history of pictures. This is that book.
David Hockney and Martin Gayford discuss the 30,000-year-old history of pictures,in one brilliantly original volume. Building on Hockneys groundbreaking book Secret Knowledge, they argue that film, photography, painting and drawing are deeply interconnected. Insightful and thought-provoking, A History of Pictures is an important contribution to our appreciation of how we represent our reality.
