David Hockney. 220 for 2020. Art Edition No. 1–100 ‘Spilt Ink with Tests’ Edition of 100
Locked down in Normandy, David Hockney closely followed the changing seasons, using his iPad to spontaneously depict his impressions of the surrounding landscape. The project became a lifeline for him, and a message of hope he offered to us. For this artist’s book, Hockney has compiled 220 (plus four bonus) iPad paintings from 2020, each illustration tipped in on blue paper stock. The book is accompanied by an extra volume with facsimiles of two sketchbooks created in the build-up to the project.
