Jim and JH counting cranes

Counting cranes in the City of London from the vantage point of the café at the sixth floor of Tate Modern at Bankside, South London. We’d enjoyed a brief visit to the Pop Art exhibitions featuring works by Andy Warhol, David Hockney and Roy Liechtenstein, dating from the sixties.
It is the detail and scale which is large part of the joy of the direct viewing experience when viewing the original artwork of familiar images: the unexpected huge size of the canvas of Liechtenstein’s “Wham”, the detailed differences between instances of Warhol’s “Marilyn” screen prints and the way Hockney in "Man in Shower in Beverly Hills 1964" melds elements of a Californian residence with a post-cubist disregard for literal scale and relationships.
