For Pet Loving Mums
David Hockney’s Dog Days
‘A charming collection … an essential book for the dachshund or Hockney lover’ Mail on Sunday
‘From September 1993, I painted and drew my dogs. This took a certain amount of planning, since dogs are generally not interested in Art (I say generally only because I have now come across a singing dog. Food and love dominate their lives.’
David Hockney introduces his two dachshunds, Stanley and Boodgie, in this delightful collection. The paintings and drawings are characteristic of Hockney’s eye for colour and his accompanying text gives us a glimpse of how to work with models who don’t necessarily want to sit still.
