'In the 1970s, Howard and I would occasionally go on a tear. There was always intrigue in the air..', Keith Milow, 2017
The present work was given to Howard Hodgkin by the Artist on the occasion of their simultaneous exhibitions inaugurating the new premises of the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, in October 1975. Hodgkin's new paintings were shown in the lower galleries, whilst Milow's exhibition was upstairs and the first of several exhibitions featuring his so called 'cross works' that are part of a series he continues to work on today.
We are grateful to the Artist for his kind assistance with the cataloguing of this work.
