Footnotes

  • In 1964, Hockney visited Los Angeles where he became entranced with the Southern Californian landscape, and in particular with swimming pools as unnatural waterscapes that underscored the hedonism and freedom that characterized life in California. In 1978, Hockney rented a home in the Hollywood Hills where he began a series of lithographs of swimming pools with master printer Kenneth Tyler. Each print in the series has the same matrix of a diving board over the deep-end of the pool. As the series progresses, Hockney literally "fills the pool" with various lines and colors.
