Peter Lanyon was one of the most exciting and original landscape painters of the 20th Century. The only native-born Cornishman of the St Ives artists, Lanyon”s representation of the land he grew up in was complex and passionate: for him it was part social history, part myth, part aesthetic. This book tells of Lanyon”s singular place within the 20th Century”s major art movements alongside his strong belief in employing landscape and place to explore questions of personal identity. ‘I would not be surprised if all my painting now will be done on an edge – where the land meets the sea, where flesh touches at the lips.”
