An exploration of space, colour, expression, and landscape
Blue Shadows, 1940


Ivon Hitchens prolific body of work is distinguished by his expressive colour palette, landscape subject, abstraction, and influences from the experimental atmosphere of early twentieth-century art. His paintings are rooted in the domestic images and landscape of an English experience, but his expressive use of colour and innovative style won international appeal throughout the twentieth century and beyond.

Curved Barn, 1922




Ivon Hitchens: Space through Colour is an exhibition taking place at Lakeside Arts Centre, University of Nottingham. The exhibition includes representative works from six decades of the artist's career. The exhibition contains four rooms separated into distinct phases of the artist's life and career from his early beginnings through World War II to his final years in the English countryside.

Treyford Church, 1935


Triangle to Beyond, 1936


Hitchens began his career in the 1920s with strong influences from the Arts and Crafts movement. Hitchens personal style of abstraction in landscape format is first recognised in the 1922 painting 'Curved Barn.' After the bombing of his home in WWII, the artist and his family fled to the countryside where he spent the rest of his life. The war and postwar years saw innovative developments in landscape painting and recognition as a prolific, widely acclaimed and international artist.

Flowers, 1942


Red Boat and Bushes, 1970


Sussex Canal no. 2, 1972


This is a free exhibition taking place at Djanogly Gallery, Lakeside Arts, University of Nottingham from Sat 02 Nov - Sun 23 Feb.
