The first contemporary artist to be commissioned to produce our Festival Programme Book cover in 1998 who was not designing for the stage, Howard Hodgkin’s timeless painting has been reprinted and presented as part of the exhibition. When writing about this artwork, Norman Rosenthal said, ‘The translation of beautiful memories into paint of the highest density has always been the central mark of Hodgkin's art. He is a painter who evokes atmosphere with the brush which can be, and in his case is, most consciously a vehicle for holding onto the memories of people, places and emotions and which aspires to be the equivalent of both poetry and music. His apparently abstract paintings are like chords continually echoing as we look at them. His cover is a perfect beginning and end, and by its presence, gives a very particular mood to this year's season.’

Howard Hodgkin (1932–2017) was born in London, UK. He exhibited internationally at Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, US; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, US; Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf, DE; Hayward Gallery, London, UK, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, IE; Tate Britain, London, UK; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, ES and The Hepworth, Wakefield UK.
