“Howard Hodgkin (1932-2017) Painter and Printmaker”

In this lecture Jon Benington will discuss the Victoria Art Gallery’s evolving relationship with Howard Hodgkin, starting in 1952 when he first exhibited here, and ending in 2016 with the ‘India on Paper’ exhibition of his work. Also woven into the story will be the speaker’s own reminiscences of the artist, an overview of his methods and an account of his connections with Bath Academy of Art, both as student and lecturer.
