This signed screenprint from 1995 is a rare, limited edition of 30 from Howard Hodgkin’s Venetian Views series. The horizontal print shows an abstract representation. The composition is occupied by dominated by dark black and grey tones and by brash painterly brushstrokes and dots of colour.
Hodgkin painted Venice, Night after a failed attempt at illustrating the famous novel of Thomas Mann, Death In Venice, written in 1912. A great admirer of Mann and an avid reader, Hodgkin had initially decided to create a series of works inspired by the story of the ennobled writer and the Polish young boy, along the lines of his other series As You’d Been Won’t. However, Hodgkin soon left the project and decided instead to focus on capturing the emotions and fleeting shades of colour that permeated the Italian city. The blacks and greys of the print, unusual in Hodgkin’s vibrant vocabulary of colours, work together to represent a nocturnal landscape, as the title of the print suggests.
