Sir Howard Hodgkins (born 1932), London, to 2001 [1]

From 2001
Freer Gallery of Art, given by Sir Howard Hodgkin in 2001

Notes:

[1] The object was probably acquired when Sir Howard Hodgkins formed his London collection in the 1960s, but the exact date of acquisition cannot be determined. However, because the object is a small, unfinished work from the early nineteenth century, it falls within a category of artworks that the Indian government typically allows out of the country (according to Curatorial Note 3, Debra Diamond, June 15, 2001, in the object record).
