A Bigger Splash is a large pop art painting by British artist David Hockney. Measuring 242.5 centimetres by 243.9 centimetres, it depicts a swimming pool beside a modern house, disturbed by a large splash of water created by an unseen figure who has apparently just jumped in from a diving board. It was painted in California between April and June 1967, when Hockney was teaching at the University of California, Berkeley, United States. Jack Hazan's 1975 film A Bigger Splash, a fictionalised biopic concentrating on the breakup of Hockney's relationship with Peter Schlesinger, was named after the painting.

A Bigger Splash is a portrait of an event. The event itself took a split second. It took far less time than the two other real times with which the picture concerns itself: the time it takes us to look at it and the two weeks it took Hockney to paint it.
