Drawing on unprecedented access to Hockney's extensive archives, notebooks, and paintings, as well as on interviews with family, friends, and Hockney himself, the biographer provides a colorful and intimate portrait of one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Born in 1937, Hockney grew up in a Northern English town during the days of postwar austerity. By the time he was 10 he knew he wanted to be an artist, and after leaving school he went on to study at Bradford Art College and later at the Royal College of Art in London. Bursting into the scene at the Young Contemporaries exhibition, Hockney was quickly heralded as the golden boy of postwar British art and a leading proponent of pop art. A scholarship later led him to California, where he painted his iconic series of swimming pools.
