Drawing From Life by David HockneySo who's in your pantheon of great masters of drawing? I asked him. "Ingres, Degas, and van Gogh. And Rembrandt," he said. And Picasso, I added. He concurred. "And Toulouse-Lautrec," he went on. I said, what about Egon Schiele? Better than Klimt, I said. "No, Klimt can be very good," Hockney said. "I saw a Klimt nude once, drawn with a green pencil and a red pencil, very soft. Amazing."
Hard work: Together with up to five assistants, Mueller painted all day long from sunrise to sunset. The picture appeared on the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland, as part of the town's Festival of World Cultures
