11th October 2016

A History of Pictures
'David Hockney's guide to keeping your eyes fresh in an Instagram world … What we get here are the shared observations of two people whose lives, in different ways, are steeped in making and thinking about pictures. There are no short cuts to the insights – the visual literacy – this makes possible. Like the mark-making of the Zen ink brush masters, you have to “practise and practise”, staring at paintings and photos, dreaming about them, reading up, coming back for more …

'A History of Pictures' isn’t really a history book. Rather, it’s an eloquent conversational testimony to the vividness of life lived through intelligent looking. You will see Caravaggio and Citizen Kane with fresh eyes. Your Instagram feed will never look the same again.’
– Michael Bird, Daily Telegraph

'It is as thought-provoking as it sounds. The relative informality of setting out questions, answers, observations and analyses is like hearing from superbly well-informed and enthusiastic friends, because the format,  the superbly chosen illustrations for the entire history of image-making and the design of the book itself make its contents unusually accessible, allowing them still to be argumentative, stimulating, even at times unexpected, and totally engaging …

Hockney and Gayford both know and have seen so much, and are generous in sharing. This thoughtful book is written very simply, which in a way disguises the wealth of material. It makes one want even more. ‘A History of Pictures’ is, in fact, worth expanding: please take on the world.’
