Meaning & Analysis

Indian View J is one of the most literal out of Hodgkin’s Indian series. Whereas for other prints he preferred to focus on very abstract patterns of colours, arranged together to provoke an emotional response in the viewer, here the artist seems to be almost too representational. The image, like the other prints in the series, captures Hodgkin’s sights as he travelled through India by train. In the catalogue to an exhibition for the British Council in 1976, Hodgkin recounted that the prints in Indian Views are “…among the most literally representational works that I have produced and in format influenced by the shape and proportion of aeroplane windows and the windows of old fashioned Indian trains. They depict horizons, fields, mountains, skies, the sea and also different times of day.”
