DESIGN FOR LIMITED EDITION RUG, 2016-17, COMMISSIONED BY THE HEPWORTH WAKEFIELD

Catalogue Note

The present work was painted in 2016 for a limited edition rug, which was released to coincide with the Howard Hodgkin: Painting India exhibition at the Hepworth Wakefield in 2017.

The rug was created in partnership with Christopher Farr, a London based company that have been at the forefront of contemporary rug design since 1990. Matthew Bourne from Christopher Farr, who managed the production of the rug, said ‘We are delighted and proud to have been involved in this project and were at pains to involve the artist as much as possible. I travelled to India in January to see the first samples and then arranged for them to be sent down to Howard in Mumbai along with hundreds of colours for the final colour selections to be made’. 

The sixty rugs were also hand knotted in Mirzapour, India, from the finest imported Persian yarn that was hand-spun and hand-dyed. All profits raised from the sale of the rugs were donated to support the Hepworth Wakefield gallery.
