Christopher Nolan on David Hockney

“One of the things [David] Hockney does is he takes certain paintings and he flips them and asks, ‘Don’t they look better that way?’ The wonderful thing about Hockney, when you meet him, there’s no bitterness or anger about the art establishment’s rejection of his discoveries. He’s not a revolutionary. He’s not judging or diminishing the achievements of the past. He’s interested in understanding what actually went into it, what the techniques were.’

— Christopher Nolan (via The Nolan Variations)
