An even big­ger splash

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

FA­MOUS for de­pict­ing Cal­i­for­nian swim­ming pools and York­shire’s multi-coloured rolling hills, David Hock­ney (right) has ac­cepted an in­vi­ta­tion from West­min­ster Abbey to de­sign a stained-glass win­dow to cel­e­brate The Queen’s reign, now the longest in Bri­tish his­tory.

‘I have planned a land­scape full of blos­som that’s a cel­e­bra­tion ev­ery year,’ says the artist, whose win­dow will light up the north transept from June 2018, set to co­in­cide with the planned open­ing of The Queen’s Diamond Ju­bilee Gal­leries in the abbey.
