Hales is delighted to announce the inclusion of John Hoyland in Hoyland and Hamilton: Conservation and Research at The Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow, through 5 February 2022.
From October 2022 until February 2023, The Hunterian are showcasing conservation and research work on two of the most significant paintings in The Hunterian art collection: Hector’s Farewell to Andromache painted between 1774 and 1786 by Gavin Hamilton and 18-6-69 painted by John Hoyland in 1969.
These works by Hamilton and Hoyland offer an interesting and extreme contrast that highlights the differences in technique and approaches to painting that artists have had throughout the centuries: from figurative historical themes to non-figurative, from pigments ground in oil to acrylic paint in tubes and from fine sable brushes to rollers and squeegies. However, in both cases these artists were influenced by their travels and studies further afield. For Hamilton it was Rome, for Hoyland it was New York and the Caribbean.
