WASHINGTON, DC.- “Howard Hodgkin in Venice,” a new exhibition at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery at the George Washington University, displays four prints from Howard Hodgkin’s “Venetian Series” alongside a rug designed by Mr. Hodgkin and a painting titled “Little Venice.” A companion exhibition, “Italy Inspiration,” showcases photographs and prints from the GW Collection and paintings by GW alumni and a GW professor emeritus depicting the feel of Italy as well as the country’s unique sites.

Mr. Hodgkin (1923-2017), a British painter, completed more than 120 lithographs, etchings and screen prints during his career. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery recently received a gift of 10 prints including the series “Venetian Views” from 1995. The gift came from Carleen Keating, a collector, patron and GW alumna. This suite of four large-scale prints, measuring approximately 5 by 6 feet each, mirror Mr. Hodgkin’s paintings in size and the stylistic feeling provided by hand coloring and a brushstroke-like mark. A Hodgkin-designed rug accompanies the artworks. The run was gifted to GW recently by the late artist’s partner Antony Peattie and facilitated by Dr. Luther W. Brady.

“We are fortunate to have these works by Howard Hodgkin and a collection that allows us to curate various themes in which multiple artists have had their creativity stirred by this celebrated city,” Lenore Miller, director of the Brady Art Gallery, said.

The GW alumni with featured works are Kay Jackson, Paul Reuther, Bradley Stevens and former director of the painting program at GW and Emeritus Professor of Fine Arts William Woodward.

Mr. Hodgkin represented Britain in the 1984 Venice Biennale, was the recipient of the Turner Prize in 1985, and knighted in 1992. Mr. Hodgkin was well-respected for his paintings, prints and set and costume design, as well as for being a collector of Mughal Indian art.

The GW exhibition celebrates the enduring friendship of collectors and artists and Mr. Hodgkin’s continued legacy at the Brady Gallery. Mr. Hodgkin’s work previously has been exhibited on campus in a 1984 exhibition in the Dimock Gallery, “Howard Hodgkin Prints: Visions and Collaboration” and in “Howard Hodgkin: Paintings” at the Brady Gallery in 2012.
