Martin Gayford

Martin Gayford is the art critic for Bloomberg News and The Spectator, and contributes regularly to The Daily Telegraph, The Lady, Modern Painters and Harpers & Queen. Gayford described chronologically, in the acclaimed book Man With a Blue Scarf, sitting for a portrait by Lucian Freud. The book is illustrated throughout with photographs and images and the result vividly conveys what it is like to be on the inside of the process of creating a painting by a great artist. His newest book is A Bigger Message – which chronicles Gayford’s conversations with David Hockney over many years and is destined to become another classic.
