About this piece:

A Year in Normandy with David Hockney

The course of the seasons in an artist’s book of iPad paintings. 

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 the blue paper stock. The book is accompanied by an extra volume with facsimiles of two sketchbooks created in the build-up to the project.

Collector’s Edition (No. 401–2,020), numbered and stamped in Vol. 1 on an extra page with a preface by David Hockney.

From a small, picturesque farmhouse in the rich fields and meadows of Normandy, David Hockney followed the changing seasons across 2020 and into the new year. He used his iPad to spontaneously depict impressions of the landscape surrounding him, catching the first spring blossoms, the smell of summer, the saturated colours of autumn, and the stark shapes of dark branches in wintertime. The 220 (plus four bonus) iPad paintings in this book are printed with up to seven special colours to match the richness of the artist’s vision and tipped in on dark blue paper stock. A short introduction by Hockney reveals how this planned project became a lifeline during
the COVID lockdown, from which he spread his message of hope: “Remember they can’t cancel the spring.” The book is accompanied by a smaller extra volume of ink and watercolour drawings: the complete facsimiles of two sketchbooks from 2019, starting in the vicinity of the artist’s Los Angeles home and following him along with scouting trips around Normandy.

Both volumes come in a clamshell box with the artist’s iPad painting of an aerial view of the Normandy house and garden on the inside of the lid.

Hardcover, 2 volumes in a clamshell box; Vol. 1: 43.6 x 31.2 cm, 236 pages; Vol. 2: 28 x 19.8 cm, 174 pages
