Ivon Hitchin's work belongs firmly to the British landscape painting tradition.

His work is a lyrical evocation of place, rather than a topographically accurate depiction. However, his compositions are carefully controlled, often within horizontal, double square format canvases.

Provenance

1) bought from Mrs Hitchin's, the artist's widow; 2) Ivon Hitchins; 3) Ivon Hitchens.
