Catalogue Note

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

‘I try to use a notion of tones and colours so that the design flows from side-to-side, up-down, and in and out. I am not interested in representing the facts as such until this visual music has been created. But this creation must satisfy me as being true to life, though not naturalistically accurate.’

(Ivon Hitchens, ‘Notes on Painting’, reproduced in Ark, the journal of the Royal College of Art, 1956, quoted in Peter Khoroche, Ivon Hitchens, Lund Humphries, Aldershot, 2007, p.81.)
