Poster of David Hockney’s A Bigger Splash, 1967.Our posters feature selected works from exhibitions on a large scale. They’re Giclée printed on fine art paper to ensure a high quality reproduction.
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. For the Splash paintings, 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.
