Availability: Sold out

A picture, says David Hockney, is the only way that we can give account of what we see. But all picture-makers face a common problem: how to compress three-dimensional people, things and places onto a flat surface? For us to understand how we see the world around us - and hence ourselves - what is needed is a history of pictures. This is that book. 

Juxtaposing a rich variety of images the authors cross the normal boundaries between high culture and popular entertainment, and make unexpected connections across time and media. A History of Pictures is an important contribution to our appreciation of how we represent our reality.
