Howard Hodgkin: India on Paper
T: 01225 477233
Until his recent death, Howard Hodgkin, one of the foremost artists of our time, nurtured very positive relations with the Victoria Art Gallery through exhibitions and acquisitions.
This unique exhibition celebrates these connections whilst exploring his love affair with India, which he visited for the first time in 1964.
The trip was a revelation and he returned almost every year, moved by the quality of openness in the daily life of the subcontinent.
Hodgkin visited and worked in Mumbai until earlier this year, painting pictures using the richest tones and colours which in turn delight and inspire audiences all over the world.
The exhibition will feature a range of Hodgkin’s Indian-themed works on paper including gouache paintings, editioned prints and hand-coloured impressions made over half a century.
Some of these date from the period when he taught at Bath Academy of Art (1955-66), whilst others sprang from his trust in the hand-colouring skills of Jack Shirreff at the 107 Workshop in Shaw, Wiltshire.
