Meaning & Analysis

Hodgkin created Indian View E after his return to the United Kingdom from one of his many, yearly trips in India. The image captures a fleeting view from a train window the artist had throughout his journey. While in many prints of the series Hodgkin uses colour to suggest a certain landscape, here the palette of colours do little to help a visual analysis: maybe a night view of a field? In any case, Hodgkin would resist literal interpretations of his images, and would privilege instead that the viewer focused on the emotional response elicited by the print.

As John McEwen stated: “If some of Hodgkin’s images seem hermetic, encapsulating a meaning known only to the artist, it may be because we look too eagerly for signs of the recognisable rather than allowing the colour and dorm to affect us gradually.”
