"Enthusiasm for Howard Hodgkin among art critics, historians, art collectors, and the general public has never been greater. He stands confirmed as a Master of the hesitant, truant nature of life and emotion, an artist whose great achievement is to have created equivalents in art for the textures of memory itself" (Publisher's blurb). "Our greatest colorist since Matisse" (Susan Sontag). An absolute "must-have" work of art for Howard Hodgkin collectors. This "Alexander Street" original lithograph is Number 67/90, very neatly and discreetly indicated as such in pencil on recto (lower left), and very neatly, discreetly, and beautifully signed and dated in pencil on recto (lower center) by the artist: "Hodgkin 78". As far as we know, this is the only such print available online, is elegantly cloth-matted and brass-framed, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare editioned and signed print thus. 1 original lithograph. The greatest British abstract artist of our time. A fine collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER HOWARD HODGKIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
