Ivon Hitchens

The son of a painter, Ivon Hitchens was born in London and studied first at St John's Wood School of Art and then, until 1919, at the Royal Academy Schools. In 1920 Hitchens was a founder member of the artists' group, the 7 and 5 Society, and exhibited regularly in their shows. During the war his studio in North London was bombed. He then moved with his family to rural Sussex where he lived and worked for the rest of his life, painting abstracted landscapes in glorious colours on long, horizontal canvases. Hitchens produced a huge figurative mural for the English Folk Song and Dance Society at Cecil Sharp House in London. He was created CBE in 1958. Retrospectives of his work were held in Leeds in 1945 and at the Royal Academy in 1979.
