Notes

A Certificate of Authenticity and Provenance from the Estate Late RG Hodgins accompanies the lot.

The present lot embodies Robert Hodgins’s typical semi-abstract style with expressionist overtones. In this image of a group of people, their rounded heads like boulders in a receding landscape, he uses a flattened register, sketchy lines, light washes of paint and translucent colour to create the illusion of mass bodily movement within the image, the abstracted figures jostling in contrasting fields of colour.
