John Hoyland

(1934 - 2011)

Sheffield born artist John Hoyland was one of Britain's leading abstract painters. Hoyland's career took off during the 60s when he had his first solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery. Over a career spanning six decades, Hoyland lectured and taught in the arts, travelled, painted and exhibited widely. His talents saw him bestowed with many honours and awards.

Today his works have been the subject of retrospectives at the Serpentine Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts, London and Tate St Ives. He was described by art critic Mel Gooding as “one of the two or three best abstract painters of his generation anywhere in the world.”
