Final Howard Hodgkin portrait

March 27 2017

Picture: NPG

I'm late to note the news that the celebrated British artist Howard Hodgkin has died. Is it de trop to point out that he went with almost perfect timing and in some style, for a painter? An exhibition of his portraits is has just opened at the NPG in London to critical acclaim, and includes his last painting, a self-portrait created specifically for the exhibition (below).

More on the self-portrait here, and his last interview here
