"The painting is a culminating statement about the depiction and experience of space. By using different views taken over a period of time, Hockney refers to Cubism, where a subject is depicted from multiple viewpoints; to Chinese scroll painting, where different time sequences and landscape elements come together to form an apparent whole; and to his own set designs for opera."
