David Hockney (a Bigger Picture)
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.
Special features: Hockney at work on Late November tunnel; leading art figures on Bigger trees near Warter; Hockney reflects on art and life; the making of the documentary.
This is a very well done documentary. It touches on a time of life that involves change for Mr. Hockney. Mr. Hockney is an outstanding and inspirational artist. ~Mike
