Howard Hodgkins at Tate Britain

One of Hodgkins' better daubs
A new exhibition of daubs by Howard Hodgkins began two days ago at Tate Britain and continues until 10 September. One must congratulate the Tate on having produced a lucid blurb relatively free of pretentious gobbledygook. Maybe Coxsoft Art is having an effect! Quote: "This is the first exhibition to span the entire career of Howard Hodgkin...widely regarded as one of the most important artists working in Britain today. Bringing together 60 of his evocative and vibrant paintings from the 1950s to the present day, the exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view new work in the context of earlier decades." Wow! It makes sense! However, if Hodgkins' pathetic daubs, which show scant artistic talent, make him "one of the most important artists working in Britain today", Coxsoft Art's riposte is: Bring back Attila the Hun; all is forgiven!
