He demonstrates for the first time how artists as far back as the 15th century used mirrors and lenses to project colour images onto flat surfaces and then captured these projections in pencil and paint. As well as being the presentation of more than two years' research, Secret Knowledge is an amazing detective story, as Hockney uncovers piece after piece of scientific and historical evidence, each one revealing further secrets of the past.Hide synopsis

Hockney's theories about how some of Western art's most famous masterpieces, paintings by artists such as da Vinci, Caravaggio, Velázquez, and Van Eyck were actually created. His answer led to fascinating insights into the history of art, that many of the world's most revered artists used mirrors and various optical devices such as the camera obscura to project images onto their canvasses and then 'traced' the scenes.
