Peter Lanyon

I called in today on Hazlitt Holland Hibbert to see their small, but choice Peter Lanyon exhibition, organised to coincide with the publication of Toby Treves’ catalogue raisonée.   I’m not that familiar with his work, apart from what was shown recently in the Courtauld Institute Gallery.

I preferred the early work when he was still in Cornwall, a bit drier and more experimental.

One thought on “Peter Lanyon

  1. Thank you. Without your Blog I would have missed this. I love his work. Unlike you, I thought the exhibition at The Courtauld was delightful. Flight is such a difficult sensation to convey either in words or in art.
