The painting, which also has the French name "Peinture en Plein Air pour l'age Post-Photographique" and which measures 40 feet by 15 feet, is Hockney's largest work to date. It is to go on display at the museum next year, the BBC said.
"We are delighted he has decided to give this exceptional work to Tate," gallery director Nicholas Serota told the BBC. "Standing before David Hockney's 'Bigger Trees Near Warter,' the viewer is overwhelmed by the beauty of the winter trees and the energy of the Yorkshire landscape."
