Known for his semi-abstract, richly coloured landscape painting, Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979) delighted in painting his environment through the seasons.

This exhibition focuses on the work Hitchens produced after leaving London during the Second World War when he retreated to rural Sussex.

Hitchens found endless inspiration in his new haven, and the exhibition includes his Eye Music compositions, the term he coined for narrow, rectangular canvases with unfolding narratives as the eye 'listens' to the painting. The series features meadows, flowers and woodlands depicted in lively fields of colour.
