Ivon Hitchens British Art Fair 2018: The Saatchi Gallery

20 - 23 September 2018

Ivon Hitchens

For the first time in a generation in London visitors will be able to view an exhibition in a public space by Ivon Hitchens with over 25 works from all periods of the artist’s career on view.  The presentation is mounted by Jonathan Clark, the noted Hitchens specialist and dedicated to the memory of Victor Sandelson (1928-2017), the father of the fair’s new owners. As an art market correspondent for the Financial Times,  Victor Sandelson wrote about Hitchens in the early 1950s. He would later collect Hitchens’ works, although the artist’s request to paint Victor’s wife nude was turned down. Hitchens is now recognised as the pre-eminent landscape painter of 20th century Britain. The presentation will be a unique opportunity to view the artist’s development over the decades.
