DAVID HOCKNEY "TENNIS COURT" 1973
David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most influential British artists of the twentieth century and is arguably the most important European contributor to the Pop Art movement of the 1960s.
Beginning in 1970 and continuing until the early 80's Hockney experimented and produced a wide body of photo-based work including his highly innovative photo-collages, called "Joiners".
Many of his photo explorations informed and influenced his paintings, drawings and prints.
"Tennis Court" from circa 1973 is a paradigm of his fascination with California's culture, climate and lifestyle.
This image seems to be an appropriate lesser-known cousin to Hockney's iconic swimming pools.
From the portfolio: Twenty Photographic Pictures, 1976
