The Road to York Through Sledmere by David Hockney


Artist: David Hockney

In The Road to York Through Sledmere, the brilliant red brick of the buildings around Sledmere House and the vivid greens of the surrounding countryside create a sense of magic unfolding along the winding road. This is a beautiful picture of an unmistakeable little spot on Planet Earth.

In summer 1997, David Hockney was often to be found driving across the Yorkshire Wolds to visit his sick friend, Jonathan Silver. Jonathan urged David to paint Yorkshire, and these beautiful oils began to appear, including The Road to York Through Sledmere. The rich palette of these dynamic works are a celebration of life, love and landscape.

Unframed dimensions: 61.5 x 50cm

If you would like to hang your Road to York through Sledmere with associated works, The Road Across the Wolds and North Yorkshire were painted by David Hockney in the period described above and share the same palette, as does his Salts Mill. 

(We do sell this poster framed, but only for collection at Salts Mill. If you're interested, please contact us.)
