We’ve teamed up with celebrated painter Howard Hodgkin to create an eye-catching brushstroke, available for all art lovers to own or give as a gift.

Every penny made from sales of the exclusive brushstroke will go directly towards helping us to buy works of art for public collections up and down the country – be it a Gormley in Edinburgh, a Picasso in Cardiff, or a Turner in London.

Composed of soft red and gentle blue tones, the stylish work encapsulates the artist’s characteristic, expressive use of colour. Howard Hodgkin has made it exclusively for our supporters, in recognition of the work they do in helping to buy great works of art for museums and galleries across the UK.

The Brushstroke is available via www.artfund.org/shop and 0844 880 4535.

You can give or own an unframed Brushstroke for £25, a framed Brushstroke for £75, and a limited edition Brushstroke – framed and signed by the artist – is available for £500.
