Print of David Hockney's iconic image, 'A Bigger Splash'. Archival quality, giclée reproduction from Tate's collection of modern art. Printed on beautiful, high quality paper in England.
'A Bigger Splash' was painted between April and June 1967 when Hockney was teaching at the University of California at Berkeley. It is one of a group of swimming pool paintings that Hockney created. He was fascinated by the subject as unlike in Britain, swimming pools were not considered a luxury in California as they could be used all year round.
'The bright bold colours of 'A Bigger Splash' and the fast drying acrylic paint emphasise the strong and sunny California light. The position of the diving board gives perspective and cuts across the horizon. There is no human presence in this painting, but the splash implies the presence of a diver.
Paper size, 30x40cm. Image size, 21.5 x 22 cm. Packaged flat.
