Critical Review

Street Palm makes use of one of Hodgkin’s all-time favourite representational motifs, the palm tree, and is inspired by the artist’s memory of a window view outside of his hotel in Tangier, Morocco. That memory was so dear to the artist that he also made a painting, entitled In Tangiers, on which this print was based.

Through his art, Hodgkin wanted to remember and evoke intense emotional states and personal moments of recollection. Street Palm, therefore, perfectly emblematises Hodgkin’s approach to artmaking, offering its viewers a glimpse into the eventful life of the artist.
