Howard Hodgkin Prints, catalogue raisonné
Howard Hodgkin’s prints represent a parallel and very different achievement from his paintings. They have been internationally celebrated and passionately collected, but never brought together, until now.
As a painter, Hodgkin has mostly 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, and has now made over 140 works on paper.
Far from seeing them as poor relations to his paintings, he has consistently explored the print medium for its own sake, making astonishingly varied, emotive and persuasive works that are paradoxically unique as well as multiples.
The main text is in the form of a conversation between Liesbeth Henk and Howard Hodgkin, with an introduction by Nan Rosenthal.
Hardback, first edtion, published in 2003 by Thames and Hudson, in very good condition.
