Lot Essay

'I do think the iPad is a new art form. Much better than a lithograph. Inkjet printing is more vivid—the colour stays exactly the same. The prints use an awful lot of pigment. But the bigger they get, they don’t fade, don’t pixelate.’ (David Hockney)

The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire (see lots 169-170) were first exhibited in A Bigger Picture, the artist’s landmark exhibition at the Royal Academy in 2012. The series follows the gradual changing of the season, from 1 January to 2 June 2011, and were popularly acclaimed. Although the works were executed on an iPad, sometimes taking two or three days to draw, Hockney’s intention was for them to be printed on a much larger format. An edition of 25 were digitally printed on paper (see lot 169), and a further ten in a larger format, mounted on dibond, of which this lot is an example.
