Spring Cannot Be Cancelled by David Hockney & Martin Gayford
Spring cannot Be Cancelled is an uplifting manifesto that affirms art’s capacity to divert and inspire, based on new conversations and correspondence between David Hockney and the art critic Martin Gayford.
Their exchanges are illustrated by a selection of Hockney’s new, unpublished Normandy drawings and paintings alongside works by van Gogh, Monet, Bruegel and others.
Unconcerned by the view of critics or even history, Hockney is utterly absorbed by his four acres of northern France and by the themes that have fascinated him for decades: light, colour, space, perception, water, trees.
