Girl at Night was commissioned by Paul Cornwall Jones of Editions Alecto. Working with the printer Emil Matthieu, Hodgkin produced five lithographs, together known as ‘5 Rooms’. Throughout the portfolio, the artist explores the relationship between people and places, individuals and interiors. The relational aspect of these figures, and the rooms that they occupy, is the driving focus behind the majority of Hodgkin’s early prints. The result is one that is both intimate and impersonal, as the viewers themselves are asked to explore the impact of their own gaze on these moments and memories.
