"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).
