  • Regular price £25.00

Exhibition catalogue to accompany the exhibition of Howard Hodgkin's work 'Painting India'.

For popular British artist Howard Hodgkin (1932 - 2017), India was a source of inspiration from his first visit to the country in 1964. Although Hodgkin's personal collection of Indian art has been featured in various publications, this will be the first to explore the influence of India on his own work.

The first of Hodgkin's paintings inspired by India, Indian Subject (Blue),1965 - 1969, was also the first of his paintings to be painted on wood, rather than canvas. It began a long exploration of paint surface and support that became a key characteristic of his practice. The book's illustrative journey begins with early works of the 1960s and includes paintings from throughout Hodgkin's career including some of his last work. Featuring unpublished archival material, newly commissioned essays and an interview with the artist, this unique publication sheds light on an important strand of Hodgkin's oeuvre and provides valuable insights into his work in general.

Edited by Eleanor Clayton with contributions by Hilary Floe, Shanay Jhaveri, Geeta Kapur, Judy Marle and featuring an interview between the artist and Andrew Bonacina. The book features one of Hodgkin's final paintings which he completed in 2017 along with 54 colour and 10 b&w illustrations.
