Critical Review

Interior With Figure is one of the few prints in which Hodgkin, who is known for his abstracted views of outside landscapes, depicted an interior space – a choice that situates the print within a long art historical tradition of capturing domestic interiors. Unlike the other prints in the portfolio, however, here Hodgkin does not explain who the subject portrayed is, leaving it up to the viewer to wonder, and identify, with the representation. Even more so than Girl On A Sofa and Girl At Night, in this work, Hodgkin makes use of an abstract language of geometrical shapes and colour – here still in its early developments.

With its morphing and fluid shapes interacting with one another on paper, the work is closer to the vocabulary of early exponents of abstract art – such as Wassily Kandinsky – than to the explosive and synergetic palette of colours that will become characteristic of Hodgkin’s personal style.
