  • Saw this in person during the Hockney show at the Met last year then had to go back and see it again. Can't believe someone will have the chance to own it. In person it literally sparkles.

    The exhibition also stated that his initial pass at the painting didn't get the proportions right, and he rush

    Saw this in person during the Hockney show at the Met last year then had to go back and see it again. Can't believe someone will have the chance to own it. In person it literally sparkles.

    The exhibition also stated that his initial pass at the painting didn't get the proportions right, and he rush completed it ahead of an exhibition. It's a masterpiece.

  • Hockney is fantastic, and the recent Met retrospective was monumental and monumentally enlightening. This isn't my favorite pool painting (I much prefer "A Bigger Splash," from 1967, for its collision of mystery and midcentury LA cool), but it's indeed fantastic and whoever buys it should be required

    Hockney is fantastic, and the recent Met retrospective was monumental and monumentally enlightening. This isn't my favorite pool painting (I much prefer "A Bigger Splash," from 1967, for its collision of mystery and midcentury LA cool), but it's indeed fantastic and whoever buys it should be required to keep it in public view. If it just goes into a house — or, worse, a vault — that would be a crime against culture.

  • Certainly epic in scale. I enjoy fine art and am vaguely familiar with Hockney having read about his work via a web article. I am sure the digital and photographic representations of his work do not do him justice. I, too, hope this piece stays in the public eye or is lent on occasion to a public viewing

I, too, hope this piece stays in the public eye or is lent on occasion to a public viewing were those of us with modest means can also take in its magnificence.

  • The shapes and the colors are truly magnificent.
