‘I’ve always found the world quite beautiful, looking at it. Just looking. And that’s an important thing I share with Vincent van Gogh: we both really, really enjoy looking at the world.’ David Hockney
Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature presents unique insights into the influences and similarities behind the work of David Hockney and Van Gogh. Nature is a substantial theme for both artists, one that draws their work together – Hockney’s Yorkshire landscapes are especially reminiscent of Van Gogh’s ‘Wheatfield with Crows’ and ‘The Harvest’ – and now, for the first time, art lovers can study their pieces side by side. Take a look at a selection of art from Hockney – Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature, the book also features an exclusive interview with Hockney and an essay by writer and art critic Hans den Hartog Jager.
