In the late 1990s David Hockney returned to his home territory, the Yorkshire Wolds in England. The series of impressive landscapes he painted there reflect his intense observation of the seasons and the ever-shifting character of light, space and nature. They are reminiscent of the landscapes of Vincent van Gogh, including the monumental Wheatfield with Crows and The Harvest. Brought together here for the first time in a series of striking comparisons, Hockney's outdoor impressions are presented side by side with Van Gogh's scenes from nature. Special emphasis is placed on technical aspects such as perspective and colour, which both artists used to express their characteristically unique visions of the world around them. Art critic Hans den Hartog Jager explores the two artists' different approaches in what he calls a reunion of kindred spirits. In conversation, David Hockney explains what inspires him in Van Gogh's art and reflects on their shared love of looking at the world.

With clear, vivid prose, this meticulously researched novel draws an intimate, moving portrait of the most famous living English painter. Born in 1937 in a small town in the north of England, David Hockney had to fight to become an artist. After leaving his home in Bradford for the Royal College of Art in London, his career flourished, but he continued to struggle with a sense of not belonging, because of his homosexuality, which had yet to be decriminalized, and his inclination for a figurative style of art not sufficiently “contemporary” to be valued. Trips to New York and California—where he would live for many years and paint his iconic swimming pools—introduced him to new scenes and new loves, beginning a journey that would take him through the fraught years of the AIDS epidemic. A compelling hybrid of novel and biography, Life of David Hockney offers an insightful overview of a painter whose art is as accessible as it is compelling, and whose passion to create has never been deterred by heartbreak or illness or loss.

In So Much Longing in So Little Space, Karl Ove Knausgaard explores the life and work of Edvard Munch. Setting out to understand the enduring power of Munch’s painting, Knausgaard reflects on the essence of creativity, on choosing to be an artist, experiencing the world through art and its influence on his own writing. As co-curator of a major new exhibition of Munch's work in Oslo, Knausgaard visits the landscapes that inspired him, and speaks with contemporary artists, including Vanessa Baird and Anselm Kiefer. Bringing together art history, biography and memoir, and drawing on ideas of truth, originality and memory, So Much Longing in So Little Space is a brilliant and personal examination of the legacy of one of the world’s most iconic painters, and a meditation on art itself.
