31 May to 7 July 2012

Alan Cristea Gallery in Cork Street, London W1S 3NU, will mount an exhibition of Howard Hodgkin’s prints to celebrate his 80th birthday.

The birthday will be on 6 August but, as Alan Cristea has said, That’s not an ideal moment to open any show. The exhibition will look back at Howard’s long engagement with prints – he made his first, Acquainted with the Night, after a poem by Robert Frost, while still a student at Corsham College of Art in 1953. It has since disappeared: if anyone knows of a copy, please contact the website at [email protected].
