Stimulating conversations between a master of contemporary art and an art critic on the essence underlying visual art through the millennia.

The history of pictures can’t be uncovered only through pictures.

——Noi Sawaragi, art critic

How do painters go about transposing three-dimensional figures, objects, and scenes onto a two-dimensional work of art? How do we humans see the world around us, and indeed our own selves? In this series of conversations, now available in a revised trade edition, David Hockney and Martin Gayford engage in a revolutionary discussion of art that sweeps over centuries and continents and covers not only painting but also photography, film, and the digital realm.

This is the Japanese edition of a book published in the United Kingdom in 2016 and 2020 by Thames & Hudson Limited.
The Japanese edition is available for purchase only within Japan.
