Painter, graphic artist, photographer, stage designer, writer – David Hockney is one of the most versatile and significant artists of our time. The British artist’s international breakthrough came in the mid 60s with his homoerotic shower scenes and paintingsof sun-speckled Californian swimming pools. In later works as well, the artist proved himself a keen observer and passionate experimenter. Melvyn Bragg met with the artist at his major 1988 retrospective at the Tate Gallery. Here Hockney reveals the background and intentions behind his works and recounts anecdotes on the milestones of his career – a very special kind of exhibition tour.
