Overview

In this artist’s book of 120 iPhone and iPad drawings, David Hockney follows the course of the seasons through the window of his Yorkshire home. Each image depicts a fleeting moment—from the colorful sunrise and lilac morning sky to nighttime impressions, snow-covered branches and the arrival of spring. Printed in large format, this is a highly perceptive and poetic body of work.

Collector’s Edition (No. 1,001–2,000), each signed by David Hockney
Hardcover in clamshell box, 15.2 x 19.7 in., 25.83 lb, 248 pages


More Information

When David Hockney discovered the iPhone as an artistic medium, he opened up entirely new possibilities for painting. He made his first digital drawings in spring 2009. The iPhone was easy to use and he didn’t even have to get out of bed to start his working day, drawing morning impressions in broad lines and dazzling colors directly on his screen. In 2010, Hockney first used an iPad which, with its larger screen, expanded his artistic repertoire and enabled an even more complex interplay of color, light, and line.

Each image captures a fleeting moment, from the colorful sunrise and lilac morning sky to nighttime impressions and the arrival of spring. Fascinating details reveal drops on window panes, distant lights in the night, reflections on glasses, bottles, and vases an abundance of subtly varied vegetation. We experience the passage of time through the eyes of David Hockney.

This artist’s book, printed in large-format, brilliant resolution, presents these impressions in 120 drawings made between 2009 and 2012, arranged by the artist himself in chronological order.

Collector’s Edition (No. 1,001–2,000), each signed by David Hockney.

Also available in four Art Editions of 250 copies respectively (No. 1–1,000), each with a print signed by David Hockney.


The Artist

David Hockney (born 9 July 1937) is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer, and photographer. He first emerged in the early 1960s during the height of British pop, then moved to Los Angeles in 1964, where he famously painted the light, the landscape, and the swimming pools. Always evolving his art, he became interested in new technologies, working with Polaroids, fax machines, digital video, or the iPhone and iPad as tools for his painting. Since a first big survey exhibition, which in 1970 traveled Europe from the Whitechapel Gallery in London, he has been one of the most widely exhibited and popular artists of our time.
