2 August 2008 – 21 September 2008

Roger Hilton (1911-1975) is widely thought to be one of the best and most adventurous painters of his generation. His paintings can be as rumbustious as the life he led. However abstract the paintings become the human body is never very far away. Spontaneous in gesture, they show him to be one of the boldest yet subtlest colourists.

The exhibition focuses on Hilton at the height of his powers, from 1953 when he first saw the paintings of Mondrian, to 1965 when he left London to settle in Cornwall. It will feature more than forty oil paintings including several rarely or never seen before in exhibitions.

This is the only showing of this exhibition, which has been selected by Andrew Lambirth and Michael Harrison, Director of Kettle’s Yard. The catalogue includes essays by Andrew Lambirth, painter Luke Elwes, and German art historian Anett Hauswald.

The exhibition is being supported by John and Jennifer Talbot.
