This event has ended.

Richard Lonsdale-Hands (1913-1969) was a gifted and highly successful London-based industrial designer. At the age of twenty-four, he founded Richard Lonsdale-Hands Associates. Within a decade he was a leader in British design and an internationally recognized captain of industry.

Lonsdale-Hands began to paint in 1947 as a means of recreation and self-expression. He would go on to produce over 500 works before his untimely death in 1969. Though initially art was for him a second vocation, Lonsdale-Hands grew increasingly serious about his painting, eventually pursuing a public career as an artist. Hirschl & Adler first showed the artist’s work in 1961 and celebrates the 50th anniversary of that event with the present exhibition.
