David Hockney’s iconic A Bigger Splash, 1967 printed using our highest quality print method on 100% cotton rag paper, with hand-torn edges and interleaved with acid-free tissue paper. Elegantly presented in a folio, this edition also contains a curatorial insert card with information about the artwork.

A Bigger Splash was painted between April and June 1967 when Hockney was teaching at the University of California at Berkeley. For this piece, Hockney wanted to capture a moment in time, explaining, ‘when you photograph a splash, you’re freezing a moment and it becomes something else. I realised that a splash could never be seen this way in real life, it happens too quickly. And I was amused by this, so I painted it in a very, very slow way’.

David Hockney, English painter, printmaker, photographer and stage designer, is perhaps the most popular and versatile British artist of the 20th century.
