Howard Hodgkin: Memories, Paintings 1978 - 1999

An exhibition of paintings by Howard Hodgkin (including loans from Tate and private collections) provides insight into the master colourist’s fascination with memory.
In autumn 2020, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert presents an exhibition devoted to the art of Howard Hodgkin (1932-2017), widely regarded as one of the leading British painters of the last fifty years. Bringing together nineteen of the artist’s most distinctive paintings, it marks the first loan exhibition to be held in London since Hodgkin’s death aged eighty-four in 2017, and follows major retrospectives held at the National Portrait Gallery in 2017 and Tate Britain in 2006.
Howard Hodgkin: Memories traces the development of Hodgkin’s engagement with recollected experiences, a subject matter that he felt to be “impossibly nebulous”. In so doing, it provides an opportunity to view celebrated paintings such as Clean Sheets (1980- 84), on loan from Tate, alongside major works from private collections, many of which are rarely seen. These include After Degas (1993), Storm (1996-7) and Learning about Russian Music (1999). Also on view will be a range of previously unseen material selected from Hodgkin’s private archive, which sheds light on his sources of inspiration.
