PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE ELIOT HODGKIN,
SOLD BY THE GEORGIAN GROUP AND THE VICTORIAN SOCIETY
(Lots 77-78, 97, 99, 126 and 150)
For the catalogue of the exhibition Eliot Hodgkin 1905-1987, Painter and Collector at Hazlitt, Gooden & Fox, 14 March-10 April 1990, Sir Brinsley Ford provided an affectionate and admiring introduction which comprised a brief biography and reflections on his friend's achievements, both as a gifted and individual artist and as a collector of an unusual range of interests fully shared by his wife Mimi. Eliot Hodgkin was particularly interested in architecture and the preservation of distinguished buildings, many of which he had seen destroyed during World War II and its aftermath, and he consequently decided that his own collection should be sold for the benefit of The Georgian Group and The Victorian Society.
