Upon Reflection: Andre Kertesz and David Hockney

A little bit more about David Hockney, as it’s his 80th birthday – a repost from February

It reminds me of David Hockney – here in Portrait of an artist (Pool with 2 figures) painted by David Hockney (below)


Hockney was so absorbed with the reflections within water that he painted the bottom of his pool with physical blue curves, to give that sense of movement:

    1. Thank you, David! It’s certainly a similar design, although it looks a wee bit more regular than his own one. Interesting!
