The Last Days of Hilton: The Gouaches of Roger Hilton 1973-75
Short biography and critical assessment of Roger Hilton’s work, in which the author focuses on the rich complexity and cultural significance of the artist’s later work in gouache. Adrian Lewis considers Hilton’s identification with French nineteenth-century models of bohemianism and cultural resistance, his response to ‘child art’ and his desire to break down the distinctions between art-making and other forms of graphic communication.
