This is David Hockney's first ever computer drawing, created on the Quantel 'Paint Box' in 1986.
'Pembroke Studios' and was created as part of the documentary 'Painting with Light' for the BBC - see the video of David Hockney creating the image in the 'Further Images' section above. The image was digitally printed on cellophane and it is the only version that was printed.
David Hockney could immediately see the potential of drawing in this new medium and planned to create more works on his travels to Japan. However, instead Hockney went on to make a series of Home-Made prints on his Cannon and Xerox printers.
David Hockney has alway embraced new technologies as a way of creating art, and has gone on to create numerous drawings on Computers, the iPad and iPhone and this picture of 'Pembroke Studio' is the genesis of those works, and a piece of art history.
The accompanying 6 page booklet measures 30 x 21 cm is a prospectus or pitch by Griffin Productions for the creation of television series "David Hockney's Japan".
