This was the last instalment of the Artist's Eye series run by the National Gallery in 1981.

This book details the selection of art picked by David Hockney. Using the artwork seen in his work Looking at Pictures on a Screen Hockney observes the connection between photography and painting, between reproductions and 'the real thing' and the importance of sharing art to induce emotion.
