Reviews 'David Hockney RA: A Bigger Picture', exhibited at the Royal Academy from January to April 2012. The project of creating monumental landscape paintings was based on a small area near the artist's home at Bridlington in East Yorkshire. Works developed with time-framed films, photographs, iPad studies, drawings, sketchbooks, oils and watercolours; recording particular motifs and places in the changing seasons. Studies were enlarged on joined canvases in compositions up to 30' wide, designed to immerse the viewer in an intense experience of the landscape. The monograph includes assessments of the oils, watercolours and drawings by James Cahill; the films, photo-collages, sketchbooks and iPad studies by Michael Lovell-Pank; and recent catalogues and books on the artist by Marco Livingstone, Martin Gayford and Christopher Simon Sykes, reviewed by Marina Vaizey.
