Catalogue Note

The Paris Review is a quarterly literary magazine, established in Paris in the 1950s; the magazine later moved to New York in the 1970s.  Known for publishing early works by notable writers, the review also published an ongoing series of prints and posters by contemporary artists.

Books for the Paris Review shows the increasing importance of hand-colouring in Hodgkin’s work, as the pages of the books in the image are created by these gestural brushstrokes.
