'Two women at a table', 1953, pencil on paper, 22 x 15.6cm, on view at Hodgkin's @nationalportraitgallery exhibition Absent Friends until 18 June. ⠀

Paul Moorhouse writes in the exhibition catalogue: "...this study was made from memory while Hodgkin was studying at Corsham... Its subject is the relationship between two people, but the connection isn't only physical. The underlying theme is the intimacy of the situation, a psychological dimension that would assume a greater prominence in his subsequent work."⠀

Hodgkin's exhibition Absent Friends opens @nationalportraitgallery today. This new painting, his last on such a scale, is titled 'Portrait of the Artist Listening to Music,' 2011–16, Oil on wood, 73 1/4 × 103 3/4 inches (186.1 × 263.5 cm).⠀

As Paul Moorhouse describes in his catalogue entry: "While he worked on it, recordings of two pieces of music were played continuously: 'The Last Time I Saw Paris', composed by Jerome Kern and published in 1940, and the zither music from the 1949 film The Third Man, composed and performed by Anton Karas. Both pieces are favourites of the artist and closely linked with earlier times in his life that the experience of listening recalls. Kern's song is itself a meditation on looking back and reliving the past."⠀

'Absent Friends', 2000 - 2001, Oil on wood, 100.5 x 103cm. The title image from Howard Hodgkin's exhibition at the @nationalportraitgallery opening in London later this week.⠀

In the accompanying catalogue Paul Moorhouse describes this painting: "Hodgkin's portraits mainly evoke identifiable people with whom he is closely associated: other artists, fellow teachers, collators, dealers and friends. Occasionally, fragments of description and glimpses of an individual's appearance allude to the subject's identity. These visual clues are combined with entirely pictorial elements of colour, shape and brushwork, which have an expressive function. By contrast, in referring to all those friends who are physical absent, this painting is among Hodgkin's most elusive and apparently abstract. However, the painting functions metaphorically and embodies the particular sensations and emotions arising from its nebulous subject."⠀

The exhibition runs from March 23 - 18 June. ⠀

9 MAR: British artist Sir Howard Hodgkin has died at the age of 84, the Tate galleries have said. The abstract painter and printmaker was "a central figure in contemporary art for over half a century", Tate added. Its director Sir Nicholas Serota said he was "one of the great artists and colourists of his generation". Sir Howard's work is held by major galleries and museums around the world including the British Museum, Tate and MoMA in New York. The London-born artist was evacuated to America during World War Two and later studied at the Camberwell School of Art and then Bath Academy of Art, where he went on to teach.
His artworks include designing one of 12 posters for the London 2012 Games. His poster, called Swimming, featured a figure swimming in the water.
