Howard Hodgkin RIP

The great British painter Howard Hodgkin passed on March 9 of this year, but I only found out about it last evening, which Tuffy P came across something on the internet. He was 84. Mr. Hodgkin made deceptively simple, powerful abstract paintings. In some of them he included frames, which he painted on as part of the work. Last year Tuffy P saw 7 of his works at the Aga Khan museum here in Toronto. I would love to see a retrospective of his work.

Mr. Hodgkin has also been recognized for his extensive collection of Indian paintings and drawings, comprised of over 115 works, many from the Mughal period (c.1550-1850).
