Subject: David Hockney's The Splash fetches £23.1m at auction

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/12/20 at 3:52 am

One of British artist David Hockney's most famous works, The Splash, has been sold for £23.1m at Sotheby's in London. The buyer is not known. It had been estimated to sell for £20m-£30m - and ended up going for £23,117,000. The painting, in Hockney's minimalist style, depicts the moment after a diver hits the water in an LA swimming pool. It is considered one of the stand-out pop art images of the 20th Century and is one of a trio of works alongside A Little Splash and A Bigger Splash.
