A Picture of the Painter Howard Hodgkin

Episode 4 of 4

Alan Yentob presents a profile of Howard Hodgkin, one of Britain's most successful living painters, but one who doesn't like talking about his work or letting people see him paint.

Alan Yentob presents a profile of painter Howard Hodgkin. Despite being one of Britain's most successful living artists, he doesn't like talking about his work and no one has seen him paint for over 20 years. With a major retrospective coming up at Tate Britain, he travels with Yentob to India, which has been described as his emotional lifeline. They seek out some of the great monuments of the Mogul empire, visit Hodgkin's huge mural in New Delhi, and go in search of the perfect Bombay sunset.
