ARTIST David Hockney’s successful exhibition of works featuring landscape scenes from the Wolds countryside is to move to Spain.

‘A Bigger Picture’, which has been attracting huge crowds and equally huge acclaim at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, will move to the iconic Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao in mid-May, and will run until 30 September.

The exhibition was inspired, in part, by Hockney’s largest work, Bigger Trees Near Warter, his 2007 depiction of a landscape near the village. The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate, East Yorkshire in 2011 (pictured) will be dominating one of the museum’s massive galleries.
