This film may well be the best anyone will ever make about Hockney’s process

David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

Filmed over three years, this documentary captures David Hockney’s return from California to paint the East Yorkshire landscape of his childhood. It follows his move away from photography to find renewal in nature, working outside for the first time, through the seasons and in all weathers.

As the film reaches an epic climax, a revealing portrait emerges of what inspires today’s greatest living British artist.


Vivid, provocative, original, fun, unpredictable, child-like are just some of the words that describe the genius of David Hockney. These eighty unseen Short films reveal a remarkable man and artist – and they celebrate his 80 years and our 30 year-old friendship.

My filming between 2004 and 2009 – in Yorkshire, Los Angeles, London and Germany – led to A Bigger Picture, one of the few documentaries that captures a master at work (now available to stream here for the first time).

David insisted I filmed single-handedly, so there’s an intimacy and clumsiness to these recordings, something I echo in my commentaries to the films.
