David Hockney - A Bigger Splash

David Hockney - A Bigger SplashDavid Hockney - A Bigger SplashA 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 Red Pots in the Garden

The distinctive blue terrace overlooking the squiggly-lined swimming pool and use of multiple perspectives to describe the space are characteristic of Hockney’s body of work, and the bright colours and lush greens echo Hollywood Hills House his work on the same subject 20 years earlier.
