Synopsis

As arguably the single most successful British artist to emerge in the second half of the 20th Century, painter, photographer and graphic artist David Hockney rejected abstraction early on, favoring instead a realist style that interpolated figtures and words juxtaposed against contemporary settings - and that came to a fore in Southern California during the mid-late 1960s, with now-iconic homoerotic shower scenes and paintings of swimming pools. In this documentary, shot for London Weekend Television in 1988, Melvyn Bragg meets with the artist during the period of his restrospective at London's Tate Gallery . During the Bragg-Hockney conversations, the artist opens up on the histories of his works, the ideas belying his works, and anecdotes tied to various phases of his career. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
