David Hockney: His Own Brand Of Art History By Edward Lucie-Smith

In the past, David Hockney has frequently irritated art history professionals with his insistent theorising about how certain kinds of Old Master paintings were made, with, as he claims, the use of various optical devices. The historians claim that there is, in most cases, no absolute contemporary proof that this was the case. Why they ask, did those who might have spoken […]
