Explores the many ways in which Hockney has depicted the people around him, be they famous, such as Andy Warhol, Christopher Isherwood, and W.H. Auden, or lifelong friends, such as Henry Geldzahler and Celia Birtwell, among many others. It tells the artist's relationship with family, friends, and lovers, illustrated by works ranging from the intimate and frequently moving studies of his parents and partners to his very recent large-scale double portraits in watercolour. Hockney's People is both a unique record of the life and loves of one of the world's best-known artists and also a valuable glimpse of the moment when life and art meet. - from the dj flap.
