“A Bigger Grand Canyon”: How David Hockney Defies Scale

New York | 19 May

A striking panorama and iconic example of David Hockney’s mastery of the American landscape, Grand Canyon II is an all-encompassing instance of the artist’s career-long experimentation with perspective. Hockney’s determination to harness the transcendent experience of the Grand Canyon has installed his Grand Canyon works firmly within that same canon of the greatest depictions of the American landscape from the 20th and 21st centuries. Grand Canyon II will be offered in Sotheby's Contemporary Evening Auction, 19 May 2022.
