In the late 1990s David Hockney returned to his home territory, the Yorkshire Wolds. 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.

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.


Paperback, 176 pages, 120 illustrations. Available in English and Dutch. 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.
