On Friday 15th March, we travelled to Rome, for the opening of Howard Hodgkin’s New Paintings 2007-2011 exhibition at Gagosian Gallery in Rome.
I absolutely love Howard Hodgkin’s paintings. In this exhibition, they range from small intimate jewels to large energetic theatrical pieces – I am spellbound by them all.
