Unseen Paintings

I keep seeing iconic British modernist Ivon Hitchens in art world news. Already popular with collectors, the painter who lived from 1893-1979 is generating buzz because 24 of his previously unknown works from the 1930s were recently uncovered by gallerist Jonathan Clark. The paintings are now on view at the London gallery through October 10th.

In a review for the Financial Times, Clark describes Hitchens as the most sensuous, spontaneous and laid-back of the English modernists.

Shifting to the 21st century, Hayley Gaberlavage just added to her website a group of new paintings and drawings including smaller more affordable works on paper.
