About David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

Year Released:
2009
Genres:
Documentary
Metadata:
Filmed over three years, this documentary is an unprecedented record of a major artist at work. It captures David Hockney’s return from California to paint his native Yorkshire, outside, through the seasons and in all weathers. It tells the story of a homecoming and gives a revealing portrait of what inspires and motivates today’s greatest living British-born artist.


As gently hypnotic and fulfilling as one of Hockney’s own works.
