For popular British artist Howard Hodgkin (1932-2017), India was a source of inspiration from his first visit to the country in 1964. Although Hodgkin's personal collection of Indian art has been featured in various publications, this will be the first to explore the influence of India on his own work. The first of Hodgkin's paintings inspired by India, "Indian Subject (Blue)", 1965-1969, was also the first of his paintings to be painted on wood, rather than canvas. It began a long exploration of paint surface and support that became a key characteristic of his practice. The book's illustrative journey begins with early works of the 1960s and includes paintings from throughout Hodgkin's career including some of his last work.
