Hi,
To make things clear, I'm not an artist, quite the opposite.
In two weeks I will be visiting my friend in China and I need an idea for a gift. She is an artist and has never been abroad (we knew each other for quite long but never actually met) so I figured some book with British (I'm in London) or western art would be appropriate. Mainly pictures, not much text as her English isn't very good and she is very busy doing doctorate.
I have not a clue what to get hence I need your help. She once mentioned she liked this picture by Dee Nickerson:

one of the first results on google was this book:
http://shop.tate.org.uk/david-hockney/david-hockney-paperback/invt/18032&bklist=icat,4,shop,books,britishart
would that be good or can you suggest something else please?

Regards,
Paul

When I want to buy a present for a certain type of person ( programmer, photographer etc ) I normally just google "Best Gifts for "artists" or whatever. And this was what came up. http://dodoburd.com/gifts-for-artists

Think there should be a few things in that list she or he would like???
