Catalogue Note

'...D's [David Hockney's] house, an instant home, the kidney-shaped pool seen through Kotah palms shimmers in the moonlight.  Feel soothed and melancholy.' (Howard Hodgkin's diary quoted in Max Bax (ed.), 'Peter Blake and Howard Hodgkin in California', Ambit 83, A Quarterly of Poems, Short Stories, Drawings and Criticisms, London, 1980, p.4)

In the summer of 1979 Hodgkin and Peter Blake went to visit David Hockney in California. The visit proved to be a fruitful experience for both artists. Both Hodgkin and Blake produced works inspired by Hockney and their California summer.
