St Ives has been a centre of artistic activity for over one hundred years, drawing a long list of artists to live and work there. This series introduces the life and work of artists of international and national reputation who have been closely associated with the area.
Roger Hilton's extraordinary career began as a figurative artist, yet in the 1950s he became involved in the most important school of British abstraction, which emerged from St Ives, Cornwall. Along with Hilton the St Ives School included the artists Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron, Barbara Hepworth and Terry Frost.
Hilton's painting went in and out of figuration and abstraction during his later years in the 1970s, when he work that is known for its colourful, fresh qualities alongside its humour, rudeness and the poignancy of an artist struggling with deteriorating health.
This book provides a fascinating insight into Hilton's life and work, examining his artistic development and the role played by St Ives in his painting. Chris Stephens presents fresh and up to date analysis, together with photographs and illustrations throughout.
