Secret Knowledge follows David Hockney through his tireless investigation into revealing the secrets of the Old Masters. Fulfilling his own curiosities of how these historical works were produced without the means of photographic aide, Hockney accounts through scientific and visual evidence, the methodology used by artists such as Caravaggio, Velázquez, van Eyck, Holbein and Ingres, among others.
