Howard Hodgkin is a British painter and printmaker, born in 1932, whose style may broadly be described as abstract. Some of his work from the 1970s has been described as semi-abstract and compared to that of Henri Matisse.

The painting above is called 'Small Durand Gardens' and was painted in 1974.
