A Closer Grand Canyon Poster by David Hockney


Artist: David Hockney

This stunning poster features David Hockney's A Closer Grand Canyon, 1998. The landscape of the Canyon that has fascinated Hockney since his first visit in the early 80s. He spent a week at Powell Point on the South Rim drawing studies in oil pastel: "I took the chair right to the edge to make sure I could sit comfortably for a while. I'd be out very early when the sun had just risen. I'd just sit there. Sometimes I even thought that the whole thing could be flat." A Closer Grand Canyon -  a giant oil painting, consisting of 60 smaller canvases put together - was created on return to the studio. 

This poster is produced in Denmark by the Louisiana Museum. In 2007, Louisiana acquired this extraordinary painting. It's now a centrepiece of their wonderful collection.
