Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends

Take in the first exhibition of portraits by Howard Hodgkin at the National Portrait Gallery, followed by a two-course meal & cocktail


Visit the new Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and enjoy a two-course meal and cocktail at Le Caprice for £38. The package includes an A3 Howard Hodgkin print to take home.

This is the first exhibition of portraits by Howard Hodgkin (1932-2017), one of Britain’s greatest artists. Hodgkin’s paintings are characterised by rich colour, complex illusionistic space and sensuous brushwork. By emphasising these pictorial elements, his work frequently appears entirely abstract. However, over the course of 65 years, a principal concern of Hodgkin’s art has been to evoke a human presence.

The package is available until 18 June 2017 and excludes service and cover charge. Restaurant bookings are available Monday to Sunday (2pm to 6pm) and Thursday to Friday from 9.30pm. To view the sample set menu click here.

To book, please call 020 7629 2239 or email reservations@le-caprice.co.uk. Tickets should be collected from Le Caprice. Tickets to Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends are valid during National Portrait Gallery public opening hours.
