Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979) is widely regarded as the outstanding English landscape painter of the 20th century. Immediately recognisable by its daring yet subtle use of colour and brushmark to evoke the spirit of place, his work is to be found in public and private collections throughout the world.Newly available in paperback, this is the definitive study of Hitchens' life and work. Peter Khoroche draws on the painter's published writings, correspondence and conversation to create a critical reappraisal of Hitchens' theory and practice. He surveys the entire oeuvre (still-lifes, flower pieces, nudes, interiors and large-scale murals besides the landscapes), a huge legacy of work spanning sixty years, and charts the journey from conventional beginnings to 'figurative abstraction'.A selection of over 100 colour images, examples of Hitchens' best and most characteristic painting in all genres, provide a retrospective exhibition covering the artist's entire career. These illustrations, singled out for praise by reviewers of the hardback edition, demonstrate the artist's outstanding talents and reinforce his standing as a key figure in the history of British art.' Peter Khoroche has shown how a passionately local idea became part of international modernism.' TLS

About the Author:

Peter Khoroche wrote the catalogue for an exhibition of Hitchens' paintings (Serpentine Gallery, London and tour 1989/90) and for an exhibition of Ben Nicholson's drawings and painted reliefs (Kettle's Yard, Cambridge and tour 2002/3). He is also the author of Ben Nicholson: Drawings and Painted Reliefs (Lund Humphries, 2002).

Review:

...an authoritative study of the artist's life, supported by excellent color photographs, a thorough exhibition list, and a biographical chronology...Recommended.' TLS --Choice

it remains the most comprehensive account of his life and work and draws on much of the artist's own writings and unpublished correspondence. --Arlis 2007

'The visuality of Hitchens is very well presented in this revised publication, which allows the work to speak eloquently about the act of painting'. The Art Book 2008'[Peter Khoroche's] monograph has been written from the best motives and the most constructive point of view. He had the benefit of ten years of talking to and corresponding with the artist, watching him paint and seeing his places of work. Although he conveys his enthusiasm for the pictures, to a great extent he lets Hitchens speak for himself.' --Tls
