Modern British Art Week at Sotheby's

In October 2017, Sotheby’s sale Howard Hodgkin: Portrait of the Artist focused on the myriad objects across Indian and Islamic Art, European sculpture, rugs, textiles and furniture that Hodgkin had collected throughout his life and which provided much inspiration for his own work. The auction captured the imagination of thousands of visitors and bidders across the world. Howard Hodgkin: Working on Paper will reveal the scope, diversity and ultimately the great passion Hodgkin had for working on paper. Alongside stage designs for the Royal Ballet and Mark Morris Dance Group, commissions from projects such as the Olympic posters and illustrations for works by his friends Julian Barnes and Susan Sontag, the auction will include a significant proportion of dazzling prints from the 1960s up to some of the last works he produced. Every print in the sale is an Artist’s Proof, retained by Hodgkin in his personal collection. Following the auction, the proceeds will fund a complete museum collection of Hodgkin’s graphic work that is fully accessible for the public to see and enjoy, as well as supporting a new edition of the artist’s Catalogue Raisonné, which will feature 189 prints and many unique works on paper.
