Catalogue Note

Produced with Ian Lawson at Aymestrey Water Mill in Herefordshire, After Luke Howard was commissioned by Bernard Jacobson to celebrate the bi-centenary of John Constable’s birth. Hodgkin, along with nineteen other artists, paid tribute to Constable by producing a print for the portfolio ‘For John Constable’.

“Hodgkin, who is a distant relative of Luke Howard F. R. S., the inventor of the classification of cloud formations, made a lithograph of a cloud formation. In honouring Constable as the great painter of clouds, Hodgkin simultaneously paid tribute to the forebear after whom he had been named. After Luke Howard is loosely based on drawings by Luke Howard at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London." (Liesbeth Heenk, Howard Hodgkin’s Printed Oeuvre, 2003)
