Additional Details: This first edition exhibition poster, titled A Closer Grand Canyon, was created for the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark. Published and sold by the museum in 2021, this limited edition poster (limited to 500 pieces) highlights one of Hockney's most iconic works from their permanent collection. The image is based on Hockney's original 1998 painting, A Closer Grand Canyon, which consists of 60 canvases combined to create a sweeping view of the Grand Canyon. This work is celebrated for its vibrant colors and the dynamic way it captures the vastness and beauty of the landscape. Hockney's detailed and colorful portrayal of the Grand Canyon reflects his fascination with nature and space, themes that are prevalent in his body of work. Seeing the painting in real life is well worth the trip to Denmark, among other things, as it is one of the most treasured pieces in the Louisiana Museum’s collection.
