Author: John Hockney
The Hockneys is an insight into the lives of the family by youngest brother John, from growing up in the Second World War in Bradford through to their diverse lives across three continents. Hardship, successes as well as close and complex relationships are poignantly illustrated by both famous and private pictures and paintings from David Hockney.

With a rare and spirited look into the lives of an ordinary family with extraordinary stories, we begin to understand the creative freedom that led to their successful careers and the launchpad for an artists work that has inspired and continues to inspire generations across the world.

Never Worry What the Neighbours Think was the philosophy that Kenneth Hockney used to inspire his children – David Hockney, the world’s greatest living artists and siblings John, Paul, Philip and Margaret – to each choose their own route in life. The book explores their hardships and successes, as well as illustrating the close and complex relationships through private pictures, and paintings from David Hockney.
