Critical Review

Indian View B is the second print Hodgkin produced when he returned from one of his trips in India. While Hodgkin is known for his reluctance to disclose the meaning of his works – preferring instead for the viewers to interpret his paintings however they preferred – we do know this print represents a fleeting view from a train. Enamoured of the rich colours and ancient culture of India after his first visit in 1964, Hodgkin returned to the country every year, travelling by train in between cities to appreciate in full the landscape. In Indian View B, the green and pink patches of colour may suggest a blossoming field filled with flowers, although the disposition of the green on the upper side of the square complicates such a straightforward analysis.
