Lot Essay

'Paintings are not to be reasoned with, they are not to be understood, they are to be recognized. They are an equivalent to nature, not an illustration of it; their test is in the depth of the artist's imagination' (Hoyland, quoted in exhibition catalogue, John Hoyland: Paintings 1967-79, London, Serpentine Gallery, 1979, p. 35).

The Hoyland Estate are currently preparing the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the Artist’s work and would like to hear from owners of any work by the Artist so that these can be included in this comprehensive catalogue. Please write to The Hoyland Estate, c/o Christie's, Modern British Art Department, 8 King Street, London, SW1Y 6QT.
