Raoul Dufy, born 1877 in Le Havre, is best remembered as a devoted follower of Fauvism,and he worked in oil, as well as etching, ceramics, murals and tapestry design. Dufy’s trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris; he subsequently received a scholarship to study full-time at the École Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts.

 

Although Fauvism as a movement was very loosely affiliated, and relatively short lived, Dufy’s paintings were consistently well received throughout his entire career. His installation at the 26th Venice Biennale in 1952 garnered him the International Grand Prize for Painting. In 1953, only one year after his success at the Biennale, Dufy died in France. His paintings have been collected by numerous collections internationally, illustrating their aesthetic appeal but also their art historical significance; his work is currently held by Museum of Modern Art, New York; Musee D’Orsay, Paris; the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg; Tate Galleries, UK and many others.

Gareth Edwards' work has slowly evolved in recent years from abstraction toward a more specifically landscape based approach, lagely inspired by the Cornish coast. The paintings remain open and free with abstracted elements but are now more spatial, more elemental and evoke emotional weathers and poetic atmospheres as much as topological features. Selected as Winner of the 'David Simon Contemporary Prize" at the Royal West of England Academy, 2016, he had a solo exhibition with the gallery in 2017.

Sir Howard Hodgkin (1932 - 2017) was one of Britain's most important painters and printmakers. Born in London, he studied at the Camberwell School of Art between 1949 - 50, followed by the Bath Academy of Art between 1950 - 1954. Though his works often appear spontaneous, they are often the result of an extensive process of layering and over-painting. Hodgkin first began making original prints in the 1950s. In his later years he favoured the use of etching, aquatint and carborundum combined with hand-painting.  
 

With major exhibitions world-wide, his first retrospective was curated by Nicholas Serota at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, in 1976. In 1995 The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, presented a major retrospective which toured to Europe and in 2010 they presented a dedicated prints retrospective. In 2006 a major touring exhibition travelled from Tate, London to Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin and the Reina Sofia, Madrid.

 

Hodgkin’s most recent exhibitions include Victoria Art Gallery, Bath (2017); Hepworth Wakefield, West Yorkshire (2017), National Portrait Gallery, London (2017), Jehangir Nicholson Art Foundation, Mumbai (2015) and Aga Khan Museum, Toronto (2015).

 

In 1985 Hodgkin won the Turner Prize and represented Britain in the Venice Biennale. He has served as a trustee of the Tate, London and the National Gallery, London and was knighted in 1992. He was awarded the Shakespeare Prize in Hamburg in 1997, and made a Companion of Honour in 2002. 

 

His paintings and prints are held by most major museums including Tate, London; British Museum, London; Metropolitan Museum, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Carnegie Institute, Pennsylvania and Louisiana, Denmark.

Rose Hilton (1931 – 2019) was a British painter living in Cornwall. Born in Kent, in 1931, she attended the Royal College of Art in London, winning the Life Drawing and Painting prize as well as the Abbey Minor Scholarship to Rome. Upon her return to London, she began teaching art, and, in the late 1950s met her future husband, the leading abstract artist Roger Hilton. In 1977 she had her first solo show at Newlyn Art Gallery, and her post-impressionist, figurative paintings have achieved wide popularity. Her work is often compared to that of the French Nabi painter, Pierre Bonnard and is influenced by that of Henri Mattisse. In 2008, a retrospective of Rose Hilton's work was held at Tate St Ives.
