P07433 MOONLIGHT 1980

Inscribed ‘HH 1980’ bottom left and ‘4/100’
Two-sheet lithograph with hand-colouring, printed by Solo Press, New York, published by Bernard Jacobson, 44× 55 5/8 (111.6×141.2)
Purchased from Bernard Jacobson (Grant-in-Aid) 1981

This (with another version of the same image, ‘Black Moonlight’) was Hodgkin's second large diptych lithograph, although this time made with Judith Solodkin at Solo Press. The arrow is painted across both sheets with a stencil, and the other brushstrokes of hand-colouring are thin enough to allow the printed imagery beneath to be apparent.
