Work by four generations of the Hitchens family: Ivon Hitchen's father Alfred, his son John and his grandson Simon.

Held to coincide with Pallant House Gallery's major exhibition Ivon Hitchens: Space through Colour.
The Kevis House Gallery exhibition is held in partnership with the 2019 Petworth Festival.

Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979) moved to live near Petworth, deep in the woods at Graffham, after his London home was bombed in 1940. He continued to live and work there until his death in 1979,.

As well as Ivon Hitchens pictures on loan from Pallant House Gallery, two of his paintings will be offered for sale.

Work will also be shown by other artists inspired by Ivon Hitchens, including Peter Iden (1945-2012), Jill Bray, Emma Jamison and Tuëma Pattie.

Anne Goodchild, the curator of the Pallant House Gallery exhibition, is giving a lecture in the Leconfield Hall as part of the Petworth Festival Programme on Wednesday 17 July. (Talk now sold out.)
