Howard Hodgkin: Prints at Victoria Art Gallery

Howard Hodgkin: Prints at Victoria Art Gallery


Howard Hodgkin, Moonlight, 1980.

BATH, UK.- The Victoria Art Gallery in Bath presents Howard Hodgkin: Prints, on view through September 30, 2007. Howard was interviewed on Radio 4's Front Row recently, when the show at the Victoria was mentioned. Howard trained and taught at the Bath Academy of Art from 1950 to 1964, but he has never had a show in the city before. Some of his very earliest paintings were entered into Bath Society of Artists exhibitions at the Victoria Art Gallery in the 1950s. One of them, showing a Staff Meeting at Corsham (i.e. the Bath Academy), has been borrowed specially for our show from its usual home in Kettering Art Gallery. Howard turns 75 on August 7th, during the run of our show. Many of the most painterly pieces were made at Jack Shirreff’s 107 Workshop in Wiltshire. A catalogue is available and prints are for sale.
