About the work

Hodgkin's paintings and prints often refer to memories and private experiences, but deliberately avoid the illustrational. Though his works often appear spontaneous, they are often the result of an extensive process of layering and over-painting. Hodgkin first began making original prints in the 1950s. In his later years he favoured the use of etching, aquatint and carborundum combined with hand-painting.
