From 1 March, the colossal works of David Hockney will be on display in the Netherlands. For the first time, this spectacular exhibition offers an extensive and colourful exploration of the common ground between the work of Vincent van Gogh and David Hockney. Hockney: ‘His paintings are full of movement. What people love about Van Gogh’s paintings is that all the brush marks are visible and you can see how they are painted. When you’re drawing one blade of grass you’re looking and then you see more. And then you see the other blades of grass and you’re always seeing more. Well, that’s exciting to me and it was exciting to Van Gogh. I mean, he saw very clearly’. ‘The world is colourful. It is beautiful, I think. Nature is great. Van Gogh worshipped nature. He might have been miserable, but that doesn’t show in his work. There are always things that will try to pull you down. But we should be joyful in looking at the world’. - David Hockney - Production: Mals Media Director: Kay Lindhout Interview: Else Siemerink Production: Anna Jordans & Else Siemerink DOP: Victor Horstink Edit: Tobias Cornelissen Sound: Koos van der Vaart Music: Arling & Cameron / Modern Day Composers Translation: Joey Meeuwisse Online edit & color grading: SALT Amsterdam Audio post processing: Bob Kommer Studio’s Licensed materials courtesy of: “David Hockney: A Bigger Picture” (2009) a film by Bruno Wollheim, Coluga Pictures. “Love's Presentation" (1966) a film by James Scott, courtesy James Scott. “A Bigger Splash" (1974) a film by Jack Hazan, courtesy Buzzy Enterprises Limited. “I assume the best work is yet to come’: David Hockney” (1980) Newsnight archives.

In this video David Hockney meditates on the concept of seeing. Of depicting spring, of Picasso's owl that thrills us, of Photoshop and of comparing seat belts and bondage. David Hockney was invited to the launch of Photoshop in Silicon Valley because of his interest in photography. Photoshop has made a lot of magazines look similar and more and more boring, he says. There is more owlness in Picasso's owl than in a stuffed owl because it is an account of a human being looking on an owl. Interviewed by Christian Lund, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, 2011.

British artist David Hockney talks about the hidden role of photography in art history and the problem of preserving human knowledge in the digital age. David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most important contemporary artists living today. In this interview he talks about the birth of photography and its "murky" role in art history. A theme that he deals with in his groundbreaking book "The secret knowledge". "Art history has never known how to deal with photography" he says, and points out how the "camera vision" has influenced art and the artistic process.

Technical Art History: Using camera lucidas in painting class. A proof of concept demonstration investigating the historical use of mirrors when painting by such artist as Johannes Vermeer, Torrentius and Caravaggio, inspired by the movie "Tims Vermeer". For a few days in May 2015 students in a painting class at Nyckelviksskolan were equipped with 3D-Printed mirror holders and oil colours, basic limited palettes (White, Golden Ochre, Red and Black). A part of the experiment was to find out if the view in the mirror could be represented with the relatively narrow colourspace the historical limited palette was offering. The mirror holders or "camera lucidas" were modelled by me in Blender and printed on a Printrbot Simple Metal. The STL files will be uploaded to YouMagine or Thingiverse in due time. #rationalpainting Nyckelviksskolan (Stockholm Sweden) offers one-year programs in art, crafts and design together with a two-year professional training program for Specialist Craft Tutors.

Dank der eindrucksvollen 360° Technik können Sie hier Einblicke in das Kunsthistorische Museum in Wien erhalten. Viele berühmte Gemälde und Werke werden dort ausgestellt. Werden auch Sie Zeuge des österreichischen Kulturschatzes. Weitere Informationen zu Stadt und Kultur in Österreich erfahren Sie unter https://www.austria.info/at/aktivitaten/stadt-und-kultur. „Der Turmbau zu Babel“ von Pieter Bruegel dem Älteren ist wohl das berühmteste Gemälde des Kunsthistorischen Museums, und es ist gleichsam eine Metapher für das Haus selbst. Denn die Bestände des KHM scheinen unerschöpflich zu sein. Mit seiner Gemäldegalerie mit Werken von Raffael, Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer sowie der weltgrößten Bruegel-Sammlung zählt das „Kunsthistorische“ zu den bedeutendsten Museen der Welt. Ebenso unvergleichlich ist auch die Kunstkammer des KHM – quasi ein „Museum im Museum“: In 20 thematisch gestalteten Räumen öffnet sich eine Wunderwelt der Fantasie, mit Preziosen vom späten Mittelalter bis zur Barockzeit, die die Kaiser und Fürsten des Hauses Habsburg sammelten: darunter auch eines der wertvollsten Objekte des Museums, das goldene Salzfass von Benvenuto Cellini, kurz Saliera genannt. Keinesfalls versäumen sollte man die zum KHM gehörende Kaiserliche Schatzkammer – in den zehn Minuten, in denen man vom Museum zur Schatzkammer spaziert, wird man angesichts von Hofburg und Heldenplatz schon auf die imperiale Pracht der Habsburger eingestimmt: In der Ausstellung sind dann nicht nur die prächtigen Gewänder der Kaiser, sondern auch die legendäre Reichskrone sowie die mit zahlreichen Diamanten, Rubinen und Smaragden besetzte österreichische Kaiserkrone zu sehen. Es soll ja Menschen geben, die ausschließlich für die Sammlungen des KHM nach Wien kommen – und dann einige Tage im Museum zubringen. Man sollte also für dieses Flaggschiff der österreichischen Kultur etwas Zeit mitbringen, denn wie gesagt – seine Ressourcen sind unerschöpflich.

"I just happen to be an artist who uses the iPad, I'm not an iPad artist. It's just a medium. But I am aware of the revolutionary aspects of it, and it's implications." In this interview artist David Hockney explains what a medium such as the iPad means to him. David Hockney (b. 1937) also talks about being a practical person, how painting is "an old man's art" and about how you need three things to paint: The hand, the eye and the heart. The conversation also poses the question: What makes a landscape interesting? Hockney talks about his interest in spaces, colors and the subtle change of the seasons. He finds it interesting to revisit the same place as it changes through the seasons, which is very different depending on where in the world you are. As you move about the landscape of the painting, you will see how it slowly changes from winter to spring. David Hockney was interviewed by Anders Kold at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, 2011.

A fantastic 2001 documentary, with a huge chunk exploring Vermeer's compositional methods and techniques. Narrated by Meryl Streep My rebuttal to Tim's Vermeer: It's obvious that Vermeer played around with a camera obscura, but the more likely explanation is that he became so familiar with its optical distortion that he 'became' a camera obscura (he adopted its way of seeing as his aesthetic). The placement of his pointillist highlights on the bread in the Milkmaid (for example) is like a how a camera obscura would place highlights on a highly reflective object, but NEVER a loaf of bread. He placed them there because he was creating it in his imagination to look how shinier objects would look through a camera obscura, because he consciously enjoyed the effect of it and created it thus. If Vermeer were dependent on a bulky optical device he would never have painted the View of Delft -- a massive outdoor landscape scene that was certainly created at home. It was generally impossible before the advent of tubed paint to work alla prima outside, and if the camera obscura were a trade secret he would have never have risked using it in public. Vermeer worked it up (along with the 'Little Street') from drawings and returned to the studio to make it. Vermeer painted all of his interiors in the same room of his small house in Delft, yet the windows, the floor, the walls etc. always look different. Why? Because he was creating them in his head to look like a camera obscura, but not slavishly with a camera obscura. Finally, X rays of Vermeer's paintings show that he reworked the placement of things over and over -- meaning he was building from imagination, not directly from an optical device.

David Hockney is an English painter, draughtsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. In the early 1980s, Hockney began to produce photocollages, which he called "joiners," first of Polaroid prints and later of 35mm, commercially processed color prints. This is an example of how Hockney worked to produce his joiners.

For centuries the Renaissance has been renowned as a time of artistic genius and innovation. Architecture, sculpture and painting in particular saw rapid improvements in realism as skilled hands began working in oil paints. But did technological tools enable these unprecedented advances or was it technical skill alone? Physicist Charles Falco wondered that very question a few years ago when he heard famed contemporary artists David Hockney asking if scientific inventions might have aided the old masters. “When David Hockney had an article written about him in New Yorker magazine I contacted [him] and I happen[ed] to be in Los Angeles. I visited and saw what he was doing and it ended up being by far the most intense scientific collaboration of my entire career,” said Falco. “What David Hockney had collected for himself were color photo copies of all the paintings from Western Europe that look to him [like] something other than simple eyeballing, as his term, were used. I looked at the paintings and one in particular caught my eye on my very first visit, and it was clear to me that optics had been used,” said Falco. The painting was Lorenzo Lotto’s Husband and Wife from the early 16th century. Falco noticed something odd about the table covering’s geometric pattern. As the pattern recedes from view, it also slips out of focus. Falco recognized this as a telltale sign of an optical instrument, and theorized that Lotto had employed a curved glass to magnify individual parts of the scene as he worked. “We've published, I forget exactly the number, something like eight scientific publications. The scientific community has largely received these as really very interesting. We calculate things, we have equations, we have estimates; any scientist can plug in numbers and see we've done this correctly. The art history community isn't so thrilled with what we've done,” said Falco. Falco points to the camera lucida, a simple invention that allowed artist to trace complicated scenes. However, Falco maintains that the camera lucida can't be compared to the sophisticated technologies employed by more masterful painters. “When you project images at half-life size and small depths of field and things are upside down, it's much more difficult than you might think. And so Ansel Adams people think well photography solves everything. I defy most people to take a photograph as nicely composed, nicely exposed as Ansel Adams did with photographs. So photography optics doesn't solve everything, but largely people sort of think it does. I think that's one resistance of art historians,” said Falco. Undeterred, Falco looks forward to discovering new evidence of optical technology in historical works. In particular, he's interested in the ways masterful artist surpassed the science to create true works of art. “If you go to a museum like the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the best paintings are on the wall, 95 percent of their collection is in the basement. One premise I have, is the lesser artist, the ones that are not quite accomplished, would not have been able to obscure the features of the optical projection as well. If I can show a particular feature was created with use of optics, but some aspect of that feature deviates from what optics did, why did the artists do that?” stated Falco.
