OUTLINES: DAVID HOCKNEY AND HIS FRIENDS

PETER ADAM    Book Number: 81633    Product format: Paperback

Hockney quickly established a recognisable public persona with his peroxided hair, colourful spectacles and gold jacket. In the 1970s he established his base in Los Angeles and became the quintessential observer of its vivid landscapes and sunlit, hedonistic lifestyle. Well known for his colourful paintings of young naked men poolside, as much for artist and writer friends like Christopher Isherwood and David Bachardy, 1968, or for his etchings of homosexual lovers in bed. 'They are images of nonchalance, of boys looking the viewer straight in the eye, unashamedly, almost insolently.' His love of boys, New York, the Californian dream and watching Hockney at work, disorder and suffering and his interest in photography all come out, in a book based on a candid conversation with the artist and his endlessly inventive artistic development. Charts his relationships with W. H. Auden, Ossie Clark and Patrick Procktor, and in the US Peter Schlesinger and Gregory Evans, and all about Hockney's impatience with English prudery. From a series called Outlines about influential gay and lesbian artists. 144pp in softback, well illus.
