Hodgkin explained, “Put Out More Flags was commissioned by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas. It was intended to celebrate their 100th anniversary, as part of the Centennial Print Project, to establish The Artists’ Fund. The title comes from Evelyn Waugh’s novel of the same name, published in 1942. The epigraph shows it’s a quotation from ‘a Chinese sage’: ‘A man getting drunk at a farewell party should strike a musical tone, in order to strengthen his spirit . . . and a drunk military man should order gallons and put out more flags in order to increase his military splendour.’” (Howard Hodgkin, On Print-Making at 107 Workshop, 2010)
