Discover an unprecedented series of paintings by Peter Lanyon, one of Britain’s most important Post-War artists, in this major retrospective showcased at The Courtauld Gallery. See how the artist's creative vision of landscape painting in the modern era expressed sensory experience as well as an understanding of humankind's fragile existence in the world.
Inspired by his love of gliding, Lanyon's radical, near-abstract paintings from the 1950s depict the rugged coastal landscape of his native West Cornwall.
