Rose Hilton (1944 -2019)

Artworks | Biography

Rose was born in Kent in 1931 and attended the Royal College of Art where she won both the Life Drawing and Painting prize and the Abbey Minor Scholarship to Rome.

When she returned to London it was to teach art. She met her future husband Roger Hilton, a leading abstract artist in the late 1950s and married him in 1965. He discouraged her artistic career and it was not until his death in 1975 that she started painting again.

She had her first solo show at the Newlyn Art Gallery in 1977. She paints post-impressionist, figurative work and enjoys a wide popularity. A retrospective was held of her work at the Tate St Ives in 2008.
