This signed screenprint from 1971 is a rare, limited edition of 75 from Howard Hodgkin’s Indian Views series. The horizontal print shows a simple and abstract representation. The image is dominated by warm, yellow tones, and is arranged through different concentric frames that close in on small green brushstrokes.
The image was inspired by the fleeting train views as he travelled across his beloved India. Since his first visit in 1964, India became one of the most recurring themes in Hodgkin’s oeuvre. While some of his paintings are representational and lend themselves to a clear visual analysis, in Indian Views Hodgkin focused instead on depicting the emotions and feelings associated with his train journeys.
Through Indian View F, Hodgkin returns to the warm tones that predominate in the series, as seen in works like Indian View A, Indian View B and Indian View C. While the artist disclosed very little about his paintings, the colour arrangement of this image evokes the view of a field as seen on a day full of sunshine – a quaint and peaceful image of dalliance in the countryside.
