David Hockney on why he studied Disney’s Pinocchio

David Hockney, whose retrospective at Tate Britain (until 29 May) has proved popular with old and young alike, speaks here to Martin Gayford about the “deep desire” humans have to make pictures and how he would freeze-frame Disney’s Pinocchio (1940) in order to better understand its complex depictions of water. The discussion follows the recent publication of Hockney and Gayford’s A History of Pictures, published by Thames & Hudson.
