Catalogue Note

We are grateful to the Estate of the Artist for their kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

‘I should like to be able to put on canvas this underlying harmony which I first feel rather than see, and then extract from the facts of nature, distil and later develop according to the needs of the canvas.’

(Ivon Hitchens, quoted in Peter Khoroche, Ivon Hitchens, Andre Deutsch, 1990, p.109.)
