About

Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979) is much loved for his landscapes featuring swathes of bright colour. This exhibition considers the full scope of the artist’s career spanning a remarkable six decades.

In the 1920s and ’30s, Hitchens was part of London’s avant garde and profoundly influenced by artists such as Cézanne, Matisse and Braque. His retreat from the capital to Sussex at the outset of WWII gave rise to an extraordinary body of paintings that was truly international in spirit although the greatest part of his work was produced in six acres of woodland surrounding his home.

Through continued experimentation and a heightening of his colour palette, his works were, in the last decade of his life, almost completely abstract, whilst still rooted in the landscape that had provided his inspiration since the war.
