In addition to the painting in this exhibition, artist David Hockney created two other paintings of the Grand Canyon. He painted A Bigger Grand Canyon first, a similar view as this version but with different details. Hockney painted A Closer Grand Canyon last, which brings the viewer farther into the scene to the canyon’s edge.
