British artist Howard Hodgkin aspired to become an artist at a young age, especially after visiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York and seeing work by Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954), Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973), and Stuart Davis (1892 – 1964). Much of his work references experiences in his own life. Hodgkin describes his work as “representational pictures of emotional experiences.” [2]
