About

Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert and Frankie Rossi Art are delighted to present Euan Uglow, a major loan exhibition marking the joint representation of The Estate of Euan Uglow. Curated by Catherine Lampert, this exhibition marks fifty years since the major touring retrospective she organised with the Arts Council in 1974. The twenty-five paintings on display bring together the artist’s most important nudes, still lifes, and landscapes.

One of the most significant figurative painters of 20th century British Art, Euan Uglow (1932-2000) is renowned for his meticulously constructed works. Rare and exceptional masterpieces from public and private collections bring to light an integral element of Uglow’s practice: the nude as an essentially formal problem. The Diagonal (1971-77); Root Five Nude (1974-75); and Curled Nude on a Stool (1982-83) present Uglow’s masterful placement of bodies and limbs, unremittingly measured over his lengthy painting process.

Landscapes emerging from Uglow’s ‘pilgrimages’ to the Mediterranean attest to his unwavering pursuit of clarity, sensibility for luminous planes of light, and accomplished control over forms, as fastidiously devised as in his portraits and still lifes. 

The exhibition catalogue is comprised of essays by Catherine Lampert and Andrew Lambirth. Celia Lyttelton also revisits her experience sitting for Curled Nude on a Stool forty years agounearthing the process of posing as a demanding discipline in which both model and artist are tied.
