As part of the critically acclaimed series of children's books, Little People, Big Dreams, this book tells the story of the life of the world-renowned David Hockney - the English artist who is also a beloved part of Louisiana's collection. As a young man, Hockney attended art school and worked day and night to hone his drawing skills, sold his first painting as a student, and in just five years already had a sold-out solo exhibition.
When David Hockney moved from Britain to sunny California, he became known for creating bright, bold paintings of, among other things, landscapes, from Yorkshire to the Grand Canyon.
The book about Hockney is written by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, Spanish writer and creative director. Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games for children, and the hardback editions – like this one – offer extended narratives for beginning readers.
The book is densely illustrated and at the back provides additional facts - including a biographical timeline with historic photos and a detailed profile of Hockney's life.
