Howard Hodgkin

As Time Goes By

The Alan Cristea Gallery will be exhibiting two new monumental works by British artist Sir Howard Hodgkin. The pair, titled As Time Goes By, are Hodgkin's most ambitious and complex works to date. Measuring over 20ft long each, these two new pictures are the largest works the artist has ever made and will be unveiled for the very first time at the opening of Alan Cristea Gallery exhibition.

Each piece consists of five panels worked on with a combination of aquatint, carborundum embossing and painting in acrylic. These are the largest works ever made, by any artist, using this technique.

Howard Hodgkin is one of the most important painters and printmakers working today. His works are held by almost every major international museum and he has been the subject of numerous retrospectives, most recently at the Tate Gallery, London in 2006.

Alan Cristea has been the exclusive publisher of Hodgkin's prints since 1987 and in 2006 the Gallery collaborated with the Barbican to mount the first large-scale touring retrospective of the artist's work in this medium and which has since toured to galleries and museums across the UK.
