David Hockney – Moving Focus offers a significant overview of the life and work of the world-renowned English artist, David Hockney. Hockney's works have delighted and challenged audiences for more than sixty years, and this book contains more than a hundred paintings, prints, drawings and photographs. Louisiana has had close contact and collaboration with the artist for many years. He has been presented at several exhibitions and in 2007 the museum acquired David Hockney's giant painting, A Closer Grand Canyon.
David Hockney – Moving Focus – is published to mark the artist's 85th birthday in 2022 and features contributions dating back to the 1950s, when Hockney took his first steps into becoming a modern artist, his famous depictions of the Los Angeles cityscape, his much-loved portraits from the 1970s and more recent landscapes and digital images that reflect his ever-present focus on time, space and perspective.
Taken together, the works demonstrate Hockney's changing sources of inspiration and the direction in which his work continues to move.
