Howard Hodgkin is one of the foremost British painters of the last 100 years and his vivid, abstract works have been exhibited internationally for over four decades. His interest in attempting to capture and recreate moments of time and the fleeting impressions resulting from human interactions makes his approach in some ways more akin to that of the writer than the traditional painter. Perhaps for this reason his work has always had a resonance for those whose medium is primarily literary rather than visual. "Writers on Howard Hodgkin" gathers together for the first time the responses of a selection of leading novelists, critics, poets, travel writers and journalists to his paintings. Through the variety of voices it features and the range of literary approaches they employ, this collection provides remarkable new insights into Hodgkin's work, as well as examples of some of the most incisive writing on the arts to have been published in recent years. Illustrated in full colour, this is a unique combination of the visual and the written word and a fitting tribute to a remarkable artist. "Writers on Howard Hodgkin" includes writing by Julian Barnes, Bruce Bernard, William Boyd, Bruce Chatwin, James Fenton, Alan Hollinghurst, Anthony Lane and Susan Sontag, as well as newly commissioned texts by Enrique Juncosa and Colm Toibin.
