Jonathan Clark Fine Art represents the artist’s estate and holds the largest inventory of Hitchens’ work. Between 5th and 27th May 2016, the gallery will show approximately 28 paintings - from the late 1920s through to the early 70s - in the exhibition, Under the Greenwood.
Hitchens had a lifelong romance with nature, one of the most dynamic and consistent entanglements between artist and subject in modern British art. He represented Britain at the 1956 Venice Biennale and had major retrospectives at, Tate Gallery London (1963), the Royal Academy of Arts (1979) and the Serpentine Gallery (1989). His work is represented in many museum collections including Tate Gallery (London), the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, the Courtauld Institute Galleries, et al.
