Howard Hodgkin: Paintings 1992-2007

Thursday, February 1, 2007
Sunday, April 1, 2007

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.” Layering paint on his surfaces and frames (sometimes over the course of years), Hodgkin creates—and re-creates—intense experiences for his viewers. This exhibition focused on a select group of paintings from the previous fifteen years.

The exhibition was co-organized by the Center and the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge. It was co-curated by Julia Marciari Alexander, Associate Director for Exhibitions and Publications at the Center, and David E. Scrase, Assistant Director of Collections and Keeper of the Department of Paintings, Drawings, and Prints at the Fitzwilliam Museum.
