Author information

David Hockney is Britain's most celebrated living artist and one of the most popular artists at work in the world today. His pieces are in the permanent collections of major museums internationally, and his book Secret Knowledge, which was reissued in a revised and updated edition in 2006, turned art history on its head.

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"This is a beautifully printed book and a joy to study. The reason that I marked it down is that it is a bit on the small side and the commentary is rather sparse (which of course lets the paintings etc stand out clearly).
For the price, it is remarkable value and I expect to refer to it many times over the years as it is well bound and uses good quality paper.
This is not a coffee table book but one to be enjoyed on an ongoing basis."
