“It has so many different perspectives that you are forced to move your eye constantly…It is a totally impossible view from one point, yet there is a clarity and order about the picture. The effect of the space is extremely strong, yet it is not an illusion you want to walk into, because you are already in the picture and walking around”. David Hockney in a letter to friend R.B. Kitaj, A Walk Around the Hotel Courtyard, AcatlánHockney: The Biography, p. 209
