The recipient of the 1985 Turner Prize and grudgingly knighted in 1992, Howard Hodgkin is recognized as a seasoned champion of British art. Born into a well-to-do English family, Sir Gordon Howard Eliot Hodgkin was surrounded by collectors from a young age, which allegedly made his decision to become an artist all the more difficult thanks to the suffocation of a family of critics.

Arguably maintaining a stylistically consistent body of work throughout his over fifty-year career, Hodgkin's work hovers between the abstract and the semi-abstract. It can be easily recognized by the lushly colored, deceivingly careless-looking brushstrokes that appear frozen in space on over-scaled colorscapes spilling over rustic, wooden frames, and canvases.
