Brought to Life; Eliot Hodgkin Rediscovered, edited by Adrian Eeles – hardback
Published to accompany the exhibition at Waddesdon Manor 23 May to 20 October 2019. Available in both hardback and paperback.
Eliot Hodgkin (1905-1987) is best known as a painter of still life subjects beautifully executed in tempera. His depictions of everyday objects – such as lemons, radishes, dead leaves and feathers – have always been much prized by collectors. Less well known are his haunting views of bomb sites in London after World War II, with rank weeds and wildflowers pushing up through mounds of rubble. This revealing, fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the first survey exhibition on the artist since 1990.
