Lecture 19th June 2019


Curator in conversation about Eliot Hodgkin exhibition at Waddesdon Manor, with Adrian Eeles

Wednesday 19th June 2019 – doors open 6pm, lecture starts promptly at 6.30pm

Adrian Eeles, curator of Brought to Life: Eliot Hodgkin Rediscovered will be in conversation with Max Hodgkin, the artist’s son and Charlotte Gere, art collector and friend of the artist. Moderated by Pippa Shirley, Head of Collections & Gardens at Waddesdon.
Brought to Life: Eliot Hodgkin Rediscovered is the first major exhibition of the artist’s work in nearly thirty years, and aims to return this remarkable British painter to the spotlight where he belongs. By his death in 1987, Hodgkin (born 1905) was not only a renowned painter of still life subjects and landscapes, but also a collector and the author of a well-received novel. Waddesdon’s retrospective brings together the largest ever exhibition of Hodgkin’s paintings and drawings – nearly 100 – many of which have never been seen in public before. Adrian Eeles has also assembled a small group of works by other artists that inspired Hodgkin, and a number of the objects kept by his family which appear in the paintings. Brought to Life: Eliot Hodgkin Rediscovered is open from 25 May – 20 October 2019 in the Coach House Gallery, Waddesdon Manor, Bucks HP18 0JH.
