David Hockney the picture maker | Rosemary Sutcliff the story maker

Listening to a fascinating interview with David Hockney on radio with Andrew Marr. (On BBC Radio 4). He describes himself as a “picture maker”. It immediately made me think that I am wrong always to say that Rosemary was a ‘story teller’. She was a story maker.

  1. Given Rosemary Sutcliff’s ability to word-paint (the miniaturist’s eye is so clear in the brush-work of her vividly detailed descriptive passages), maybe we could in fact call her a picture-maker as well?
