Short biography and critical assessment of Roger Hilton’s, in which the author focusses on the rich complexity and cultural significance of the artist’s later work in gouache.
In this wide ranging critical re-evaluation, the author 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.
