Hockney's Trees

Here are David Hockney’s Bigger Trees Near Warter (2007) at the Tate Britain Gallery in London... without my embellishments! The picture measures an extraordinary 12m x 5m (40ft x 16ft), and comprises 50 individual canvases.


Hockney’s original plan was to paint Bigger Trees throughout the four seasons – but when he returned to begin work on the second painting, he found that the copse of sycamores and beeches in east Yorkshire had been felled. “A massacre,” he declared… and who could disagree?
