Eliot Hodgkin, born in 1905, was a remarkable British painter of still life subjects and landscapes. This exhibition, the first major display of Hodgkin’s work in nearly thirty years, brings together nearly 100 paintings and drawings.
Discover Hodgkin’s still life paintings of everyday objects such as lemons, feathers and eggs. He liked "to show the beauty of things that no one looks at twice” and revived the masterly tempera technique to capture detail with uncanny accuracy.
Many paintings in the exhibition come from private collections and have never seen in public before. Several from Lord Rothschild, who has long been a collector of Hodgkin’s work and a series of twelve fruit and flower compositions representing the months of the year, from Harry Hyam’s collection at Ramsbury Manor, an extraordinary but very little-known, house in Wiltshire.
In the Coach House gallery, Waddesdon Manor. Open Wed-Sun 11am-5pm.
