David Hockney Summary

David Hockney by Peter Adam

Based on a candid conversation with the artist, Peter Adam's "Outline" leads us through David Hockney's endlessly inventive artistic development. From the perspective of his enduring fascination with the male nude, it also charts his relationships with the friends and lovers who fired his imagination and whom he portrayed, both intimately and formally, in his work - including those in London, such as W.H. Auden, Ossie Clark and Patrick Procktor, and later those in the United States, notably Christopher Isherwood, Don Bachardy, Peter Schlesinger and Gregory Evans. It tells the story of a wonderfully engaging artistic personality, from his swinging sixties' peroxided hair and gold lame jacket, through his impatience with English prudery and censoriousness, to the present day when so many of those he has painted or drawn are no longer alive.
