Hockney/Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature

by Hans den Hartog Jager Author

In this beautifully compiled collection of paintings from David Hockney and Vincent Van Gogh, the reader can see the direct line of inspiration Hockney has drawn from Van Gogh's pieces. By placing the paintings from the different artists side by side, this collection encourages the reader to draw comparisons and see the similarities and differences between these works of art. The book includes paintings, drawings, sketches, and other media, as well as an essay from art critic Hans den Hartog Jager and an exclusive interview with David Hockney where he reflects on his creative process and the way he sees his work's relation to Van Gogh's.
