Roger Hilton PortraitRoger Hilton was a pioneer of British abstract art throughout the post-war period of the 1960s and ‘70s. Born in 1911, Hilton studied at the Slade and in Paris, producing his first abstract works following WWII. He was well acquainted with fellow artists Frost, Heron and Lanyon and was considered by Vasarely to have been one of the very few ‘individual minds’ left in the art world.

Despite a close relationship with abstraction, Hilton often included figurative objects in his works and increasingly figurative images, often based on the female nude, characterized the later years of his life. Though Hilton was known for his oils, he remained a consummate draughtsman throughout his artistic career and the many sketchbooks which survive him are fiercely sought after.
