About

Eliot Hodgkin (British, 1905 - 1987) Three vases No.1 Watercolour and body colour on paper Signed ‘Eliot Hodgkin’ (lower right) 15.1/2 x 11.1/4 in. (39.3 x 29 cm.) Eliot Hodgkin was the cousin of Howard Hodgkin, the abstract painter, he was educated at Harrow and the Royal Academy under Francis Ernest Jackson. By the middle of the 30’s Hodgkin was established as a still life painter but also executed landscapes and murals regularly exhibiting at the Royal Academy. He is perhaps best know for his still lives working in egg tempera. During the war he worked for the Ministry of Information and painted drawings of plants growing in London’s bombsites resulting in a commission as part of the war artist’s scheme. In 1959 he turned down the opportunity of becoming an Academician but continued to exhibit at the RA (a total of 113 paintings between 1934 and 1981). He exhibited at the Leicester Galleries, Agnews, Wildenstein and in New York’s Durlacher Brothers, amongst others. He died after suffering a crippling disease in 1987 and is buried at St. Johns, Notting Hill. ‘In so far as I have any conscious purpose, it is to show the beauty of natural objects which are normally thought uninteresting or even unattractive.’…. ‘I try to look at quite simple things as though I was seeing them for the first time and as though no one had never painted them before’. Eliot Hodgkin
