Howard Hodgkin: Painting India

Hepworth Wakefield, Yorkshire

NOW CLOSED

Hepworth Wakefield will stage the first comprehensive exhibition to explore the enduring influence of India on Hodgkin’s work, a place he returned to almost annually, since his first trip to the country in 1964. On display will be more than 35 works, painted over the last 50 years, which capture the artist’s sensory impressions of the country. They range from Hodgkin’s earliest India-inspired paintings of the 1960s through to new works completed early this year. The exhibition will also present rarely seen photographs and documents from Hodgkin’s personal archive including material relating to his 1992 British Council commission in New Delhi with the architect Charles Correa. Find out more about the Howard Hodgkin exhibition from Hepworth Wakefield’s website.
