To coincide with the opening of David Hockney. The Arrival of Spring, Normandy, 2020 at the Royal Academy in London this week, we have put together a list of books on the art of David Hockney.

Hockney has never stood still. For over sixty years he has been exploring new subjects and new techniques.

The sixteen books presented here cover his many different artistic periods—the early prints and drawings, the Paper Pool series, the swimming pools and California sunshine, the photo-collages, the return to Yorkshire and plein air painting and the iPad drawings.
