In excellent condition with 2 foxing marks plus a very very faint scattering of pinprick foxing in the top left margin. Still in its original slipcase, this hugely sought-after signed 1980s swimming pool lithograph is a needle in the haystack of later reprints and copies by the ever-bankable David Hockney. If desired, the poster text can be mounted out (see final image) but we love it just as it is!
