Afternoon Swimming by David Hockney

Bidding commences on 13 September through Phillips in London


Part of a tantalisin­g auction of rare-to-market works by the celebrated British artist David Hockney, Afternoon Swimming (with a top estimate of £400,000) from 1979 exemplifie­s his lifelong innovation and experiment­ation. This iconic swimming pool compositio­n, which displays the artist’s skill with lithograph­y, illustrate­s Hockney’s constantly evolving technique and the depths of his fascinatio­n with exploring how art is perceived and produced. It is one of three Hockney paintings to come from South African collectors Andrew and Sandy Ovenstone – the owners of the last remaining private Cape Dutch homestead, Stellenber­g, in Cape Town.
