Visions of Mughal India: The Collection of Howard Hodgkin - exhibition now online

7 February 2012

Explore the remarkable collection of Indian paintings and drawings of the artist Howard Hodgkin, shown for the first time in its entirety at the Ashmolean.

The online version of the Visions of Mughal India: The Collection of Howard Hodgkin exhibition is now live, to provide a taste of the exhibition on display in the Ashmolean's Special Exhibition Galleries, including zoom-able high-resolution images and detailed information about each art work. A fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition with further information is also available to purchase from the exhibition shop or online here.

The artist Howard Hodgkin has been a devoted collector of Indian paintings since his schooldays in the late 1940s. Progressively refined over the years, his collection has grown slowly but steadily and has long been considered one of the finest in the world. It is above all a personal collection, formed by an artist’s eye, but comprises most of the main Indian court styles that flourished during the Mughal period (c.1560-1858).

After the physical display of this exhibition ends, the web-based version of the exhibition will remain online indefinitely, as an archived resource that can continue to be explored.
