This signed etching from 1990 is a rare, limited edition of 55 from Howard Hodgkin’s Palms series. The vertical print presents to the viewer a beautiful and simple representation of a palm tree, painted in a faint green, and a blue window, against the backdrop of a dark green background.
Palm And Window is one of the latest prints of the Palm series. While Hodgkin drew for this image from the commercial and advertising vocabulary of A. M. Cassandre, the print has also a very intimate quality to it. This intimacy is perhaps the result of the window, that locates the image within the realm of a personal memory or recollection of the artist. As Andrew Graham-Dixon claimed in regards to Hodgkin’s works:
“Hodgkin demonstrates the transporting capacities of painting, its provision of an alternate world of artifice… things can be distilled to their essences, rendered down to glorious code: six swipes of green for a palm tree. The picture can be made out as a representation – in fact it is fairly literal – but it far exceeds its representational brief.”
