LAST CHANCE TO SEE THREE OF THE YEAR’S BIG MOD­ERN ART SHOWS

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape News -

A trio of tri­umphant ex­hi­bi­tions show­cas­ing some of the most colour­ful 20th-cen­tury art to visit now!

‘Howard Hodgkin: Paint­ing In­dia’ at The Hep­worth Wake­field

‘In­dia: I couldn’t work with­out it,’ Hodgkin once said. This show ex­hibits over 35 of his can­vases – such as In the Gar­den of the Bom­bay Mu­seum (above) – daubed over 50 years’ worth of re­turn vis­its to the coun­try (un­til 8 Oc­to­ber; hep­worth­wake­field.org).

‘Styled by De­sign’ at Gallery 8

In a mod­est-sized pri­vate gallery on a quiet street off Pic­cadilly, you will find – for four days only – printed tex­tiles by the big­gest names in 20th-cen­tury art. From a dove-printed hand­ker­chief by Pi­casso (above) to an ab­stract land­scape on silk twill by Bar­bara Hep­worth, all are avail­able to buy (un­til 7 Oc­to­ber; 8dukestreet.co.uk).

‘Matisse in the Stu­dio’ at The Royal Academy

A ge­nius for­mat for a ret­ro­spec­tive: gather (from pri­vate col­lec­tions and ma­jor mu­se­ums around the world) the per­sonal be­long­ings, cu­rios and hum­ble ob­jects that the worl­drenowned painter kept in his home and stu­dio, and dis­play them next to his – now price­less – de­pic­tions of them. We love the teal An­dalu­sian glass vase stand­ing next to a 1925 oil paint­ing of it filled with roses by an open win­dow (above), and the wooden Qing dy­nasty cal­lig­ra­phy panel above the tech­ni­colour cutouts that we’d never have guessed it in­spired (un­til 12 Novem­ber; roy­ala­cademy.org.uk).
