Howard Hodgkin (b. 1932) is among the most important artists working in Britain today. Nominally abstract, his paintings are, in his words, ‘representational pictures of emotional situations’. Sumptuously illustrated, this book focuses on a selection of Hodgkin’s paintings from the last fifteen years. Conceived independently, Howard Hodgkin, 1992-2007 will complement recent, retrospective exhibitions and publications, providing a critical coda to current scholarship on this artist’s work. Essays by Richard Morphet and Anthony Lane bring together personal responses to Hodgkin’s work from this period, with special reference to works in the exhibition at Yale and Cambridge; accounts of the development of his art in the preceding decades; observations on the artist’s relationship between his personal circumstances and his art; and, discussion of some of the links between Hodgkin’s vision and the work of selected other artists in England, continental Europe and the USA.
