For the gardener in your life: David Hockney's recent iPad drawings of springtime in Normandy

Featured spreads are from David Hockney: The Arrival of Spring in Normandy, 2020. Collecting 140 remarkable, super-vivid iPad drawings Hockney made on his property in northern France during lockdown, this intimate, sketchbook-like volume is easily one of our favorite Holiday Gift Books for Gardeners, ever. In an interview published in the book, former Royal Academy of Arts curator and current Hockney managing director Edith Devaney remarks: "David I think it’s fascinating how your work in one medium informs the way you approach the next. The printmaking that came quite early on informed your painting and photographic collage work and those in turn changed the way you painted later. It will be really fascinating to see how these iPad works, so sophisticated now, alter your mark-making on canvas. I can’t help but mention Monet, seeing as we’re in Normandy…
Hockney replies, "Yes, he was at Giverny for forty years, he saw forty springs, forty summers, forty autumns and forty winters. I mean, the accumulation of all that must have been magnificent for him in his mind and in the way he’d look at paintings. I know how exciting it must have been for him, I know, because you’re always wondering when will the first day be, the first little shoots, you’re looking out for them, it’s very exciting. I’m sure Monet was excited every day of his life, and he painted that way, didn’t he?"
