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 framed by a large ivory frame and a smaller yellow frame, which encapsulate a small orange view.
In Indian View H, the painterly quality of the print is similar to the pale, almost understated effect of watercolours, and works to suggest an image of transience and ephemerality. Hodgkin painted the image after he returned from one of his travels to India, deciding he wanted to capture all the feelings and memories of his train journeys across the country. While the evocation of India is clear from the title, the abstract quality of the image can only leave it up to the viewer to identify and read the print. After all, Hodgkin often repeated that he was not interested in representing reality, but rather in re-creating emotions through carefully-arranged colours and shapes.
As John McEwen noticed in his important monography on the artist, “Hodgkin speaks of portraying the “evasiveness of reality”, a realism that is “evanescent, frail and difficult to establish.”
