7-8:30 pm: David Hockney Yosemite II – Panel Discussion: Back Through the Looking Glass | Koret Auditorium
Between 1999 and 2001, David Hockney and several of his studio associates became increasingly convinced that the Old Masters—starting with Ingres, but wending back past Vermeer, Caravaggio, and Lotto, all the way to Van Eyck and Brunelleschi (around 1420)—had used optical devices of various sorts (camera lucida, camera obscura, lenses, and concave mirrors) as crucial aids in their depictions of physical reality. Those speculations culminated in Hockney’s sumptuously illustrated monograph Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the Lost Techniques of the Old Masters (2001, with a revised and expanded edition in 2006), a volume whose claims proved wildly controversial.
