Inhaltsangabe: Howard Hodgkin Paintings is the most complete study to date of one of the leading painters of the post-war generation. It is also the catalogue of the most important exhibition of Hodgkin's work in more than ten years, held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; and the Kunstverein fur die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Dusseldorf. Howard Hodgkin came to prominence in the 1970s and quickly earned a reputation as an original and inventive colorist whose paintings, based on his experiences and memories, straddle the boundary between representation and abstraction. This definitive book presents essays by three noted authors that examine various aspects of Hodgkin's art. An up-to-date catalogue raisonne of Hodgkin's oil paintings, the first to appear in print, completes the volume. It allows the reader to see the artist's historical development, the full range of his achievement, and the critical reaction to his work. A chronology and extensive bibliography are also included.
Rezension: With such evocative titles as "The Last Time I Saw Paris," "It Can't Be True," and "Love Letter," Howard Hodgkin's lush paintings, which are both abstract and narrative, call to mind the mysterious act of remembering. Eighty of Hodgkin's best works, dating from 1980 to 1995, are lovingly reproduced in full color. This book is the catalogue of the most important exhibition of Hodgkin's work in at least ten years, and traces his early development to his current position as one of the leading painters of the postwar generation. Completing the volume is a full catalogue raisonne of all of Hodgkin's oil paintings (complete to 1995), as well as a penetrating essay about the artist and contemporary art by Susan Sontag.
