Howard Hodgkin – Painting India || ed Eleanor Clayton

“I couldn’t work without it”, said Howard Hodgkin of India in 2014. He first visited the country in 1964 and it was a central influence on his work from then on and he made a considerable collection of its art that has featured elsewhere.

This book is, rather surprisingly, the first to consider the influence of India within Hodgkin’s own work and includes illustrations that cover pieces from 1965 right through to 2017. To complement these, it includes unpublished archival material as well as essays by specialists in Indian art and a 2016 interview by Andrew Bonacina, done as the Hepworth Gallery was preparing a major exhibition for 2017, which this book is intended to accompany.

This is an important look at a major aspect of the work of one of a contemporary artist and includes a great deal of authoritative material.
