Join Adrian Eeles, curator of Brought to Life: Eliot Hodgkin Rediscovered at Spencer House in London. He will be in conversation with Max Hodgkin, the artist’s son and Charlotte Gere, art collector and friend of the artist.

About

This is the first major exhibition of the Eliot Hodgkin’s work in nearly thirty years, and aims to return this remarkable British painter to the spotlight where he belongs.

By his death in 1987, Hodgkin (born 1905) was not only a renowned painter of still life subjects and landscapes, but also a collector and the author of a well-received novel. Waddesdon’s retrospective brings together the largest ever exhibition of Hogdkin’s paintings and drawings – nearly 100 – many of which have never been seen in public before. Adrian Eeles has also assembled a small group of works by other artists that inspired Hodgkin and a number of the objects kept by his family which appear in the paintings.

The conversation will be moderated by Pippa Shirley, Head of Collections & Gardens at Waddesdon.

Lecture takes place on Wed 19 June at 6.30pm. It will be followed by drinks and an opportunity to look at the restored 18th-century State Rooms at Spencer House.
