Howard Hodgkin, creates 'Ice' print for Team GB, Sochi 2014 Olympics and Para Olympics

Howard Hodgkin, 'Ice' 2014, for Team GB, Sochi Olympics 2014

‘Ice’ is an abstract image of sweeping, spiralling brushstrokes evoking both a winter landscape and the energy of winter sports. The print will be available in a strictly limited number of 350 signed copies. ‘Ice’ is the latest commission in a long tradition of prints celebrating the Olympic Games dating back to 1912, and is part of an iconic body of work including artists like David Hockney, Andy Warhol and more recently Tracey Emin and Chris Ofili for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Goes well with 'Swimming' which he did a couple of years ago..
