From Publishers Weekly
British artist Howard Hodgkin strives to depict ``emotional situations,'' to pin down ``the evasiveness of reality,'' as he explains. Sometimes obscure yet nearly always engaging, his lush, radiant, daring semiabstract paintings evoke the haphazardness of experience, the way each of us subjectively constructs reality. Hodgkin is often classified as an intimist with Matisse and Bonnard, but in this excellent study, the first monograph on the artist, Graham-Dixon, chief art critic for the Independent in London, provocatively views him as a synthesizer who fulfills Baudelaire's call for a painting of modern life rooted in a sense of the transitory and the contingent. Hodgkin creates universes out of densely packed rainbow curves, pulsating blobs of color, warring stripes. Using juxtapositions of patterns and...


Howard Hodgkin Prints: A Catalogue Raisonne

Hardcover

Book Description
An internationally acclaimed painter, Howard Hodgkin is also a major and highly original maker of prints. This is the first ever comprehensive survey and catalogue raisonné of Hodgkin's prints—more than 140 works made since 1953. An interview with the artist reveals his attitudes toward printmaking as an altogether different process from painting: neither medium is used to imitate the other, nor do they reflect on each other. Compared to the rich, condensed intensity of the paintings, his prints have a broad, expansive quality. Hodgkin's working methods are also discussed. He never collaborates in the actual printing process himself, but gives very detailed instructions: his interest is primarily in the decisions that lead to the production of a mark, not in the act of making that mark. Essays by Liesbeth...

Book Description
The definitive celebration of the most popular area of this artist's work.Howard Hodgkin's prints represent an extraordinary body of work, a parallel and very different achievement from his paintings. They have been internationally celebrated and passionately collected, but never brought together. Now available in paperback, this first-ever comprehensive survey and catalogue raisonné, compiled by Liesbeth Heenk, includes a major essay by Nan Rosenthal, Senior Consultant in the Department of Modern Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.As a painter, Hodgkin has preferred to create small works using oils and working on wood. As a printmaker, he has challenged the format, techniques, and expressive potential of the medium. He began in 1953 and has now made over 140 works on paper. Far from seeing them as...

With such evocative titles as "The Last Time I Saw Paris," "It Can't Be True," and "Love Letter," Howard Hodgkin's lush paintings, which are both abstract and narrative, call to mind the mysterious act of remembering. Eighty of Hodgkin's best works, dating from 1980 to 1995, are lovingly reproduced in full color. This book is the catalogue of the most important exhibition of Hodgkin's work in at least ten years, and traces his early development to his current position as one of the leading painters of the postwar generation. Completing the volume is a full catalogue raisonne of all of Hodgkin's oil paintings (complete to 1995), as well as a penetrating essay about the artist and contemporary art by Susan Sontag.
