The only native-born Cornishman among the leading figures of the St Ives School, Lanyon was passionate about the local landscape. Influenced by his early contact with Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo, he portrayed this scenery in constructions and near-abstract paintings, while his later work has much in common with Abstract Expressionism. This publication provides a unique survey of Lanyon’s life and work, and also analyses the critical response to the work of a major artist whose reputation continues to grow.
