Howard Hodgkin: Absent FriendsThe National Portrait Gallery presents Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends, the first exhibition of portraits by the leading British artist. Hodgkin's paintings are not related to what his subject looks like and instead focus on feelings, making it a landmark moment for the gallery as it will be the first time an exhibition of portraits hosted there will include paintings that are completely abstract. Characterised by colour, complex illusionistic space and sensuous brushwork, the principal concern of Hodgkin's art is to evoke a human presence. This exhibition will display portraits of Peter Blake, Gillian Wise, Patrick Caulfield, David Hockney, Philip King and R B Kitaj as well as more intimate portraits with lovers from the 1970s.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
