A History of Pictures: From the Cave to the Computer Screen | Author: David Hockney
Each chapter addresses an important question: What happens when we try to express reality in two dimensions? Why is the `Mona Lisa' beautiful and why are shadows so rarely found in Chinese, Japanese and Persian painting? How have the makers of images depicted movement? What makes marks on a flat surface interesting?

David Hockney is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.

Martin Gayford is art critic for The Spectator and the author of many acclaimed books
