Formed in 2002, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert is an independent association between Hazlitt, the long-established London gallery, and James Holland-Hibbert. The gallery holds an extensive stock of paintings, drawings and sculpture by Modern and Contemporary British artists of international renown.

Since its establishment Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert has held numerous museum-quality exhibitions with works borrowed from public and private collections, including: Lucian Freud – Early Works 1940-58; Barbara Hepworth | Ben Nicholson: Sculpture & Painting in the 1930s; Gerald Laing: Space, Speed, Sex; David Hockney – The Complete Early Etchings 1961-64, Howard Hodgkin: Memories. Paintings 1978-1999; and Patrick Heron: The Colour of Colour. Paintings 1965-77.

For over a decade Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert has fostered a close relationship with the artist Bridget Riley, organising the seminal exhibition Bridget Riley: Works 1960-1966 dedicated to her monochrome work of the 1960s. In 2019, the gallery announced its representation of the estates of Patrick Heron (1920-1999), Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) and Richard Smith (1931-2016), and having worked closely with families of artists and foundations in the past, looks forward to announcing further partnerships in the future.

Insights From The Exhibitor

RECENT EXHIBITIONS:

Patrick Heron: The Colour of Colour Paintings 1965 - 1977

7 October - 17 December 2021

Patrick Heron (1920-99) is among the most significant artists to have emerged in Britain after the war. He was a highly articulate advocate for the European tradition of painting, a tradition which he extended through his work. A fascination with the pictorial effects of colour runs through his entire oeuvre and arguably reached its zenith in the seemingly simple works he made between the mid-1960s and mid-1970s, the subject of this exhibition. Today these paintings still hum with the same vibrancy and freshness which moved his audience over half a century ago.

This is the first exhibition of Heron’s work at Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert and includes pictures from the artist’s estate which have not been shown for many decades. It covers the period when Heron made the ‘wobbly, hard-edged’ paintings exhibited here. He was so enthralled by their effects on visual perception that he spent a decade or so exploring them.

Heron’s exceptionally sensitive eye for colour is as apparent in his earlier work as in his brilliant commentaries on the paintings of the three artists he revered above all others: Bonnard, Matisse and Braque. But it was with the type of paintings shown here that he made work that was fully immersed in the limitless realm of pure, abstract colour.
