Inspired by India: Paintings by Howard Hodgkin – https://www.agakhanmuseum.org/exhibitions/inspired-india-paintings-howard-hodgkin

Feb 21 2015 to Jun 21 2015
British painter, printmaker, and collector Howard Hodgkin (b. 1932) has been passionate about Indian culture, geography, and history for most of his life. Given this passion and his frequent visits to the country over a period of some 50 years, it is not surprising that India has had a lasting influence on his own work. For viewers, tracing this inspiration through paintings spanning Hodgkin’s career is an exhilarating experience. The exhibition Inspired by India: Paintings by Howard Hodgkin celebrates Hodgkin’s signature style of highly physical, vibrantly coloured work that dares to stop viewers in their tracks.

This exhibition marks the first time that an exhibition of Hodgkin’s work has been presented alongside an exhibition of paintings from his personal collection. Don’t miss the opportunity to see both Inspired by India: Paintings by Howard Hodgkin and Visions of Mughal India: The Collection of Howard Hodgkin.

Organized by the Aga Khan Museum with appreciation to Howard Hodgkin.
