[SOLD] David Hockney – Dog Days – Signed

David Hockney (1937-) is one of the world’s most influential living artists.

This is a collection of paintings and illustrations of his two dachshunds, drawn over several years from 1993 onwards.

First edition, hardback, signed by the artist. In near-fine condition, published by Bulfinch/Little Brown in 1998.

“David Hockney introduces his two dachshunds, Stanley and Boodgie, in this delightful new book. The result of both sharp observation and affection, these paintings and drawings are lyrical studies in form and color. A text by the artist himself gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how to work with models who don’t necessarily want to sit still. Hockney has provided additional drawings made specially on the page, and has been largely involved in the layout of the book, creating a charming and unified whole.”
