‘Thermal’, Peter Lanyon, 1960 | Tate

Artwork page for ‘Thermal’, Peter Lanyon, 1960 on display at Tate St Ives. This painting is one of a series of works that were partly inspired by Lanyon's experience of gliding. Lanyon began gliding in 1959 and the sensation of flight added new dimensions to his landscape painting. He gained a much stronger feeling for the elements. He later explained: 'The air is a very definite world of activity as complex and demanding as the sea.. The thermal itself is a current of hot air rising and…

Peter Lanyon: Portleven 1951

‘Porthleven’, Peter Lanyon, 1951 | Tate

Artwork page for ‘Porthleven’, Peter Lanyon, 1951 on display at Tate St Ives. This work exemplifies Lanyon’s idea of the ‘experiential landscape’, which involved approaching a place from different positions and combining these views with allusions to geology, history, culture and myth. Here he depicts the fishing port of Porthleven from several perspectives, revealing its two harbours and clock tower. Lanyon later identified a human presence in the work, reading the shape on the left as a…

"Lost Mine" by Peter Lanyon (1959)

‘Lost Mine’, Peter Lanyon, 1959 | Tate

Artwork page for ‘Lost Mine’, Peter Lanyon, 1959 on display at Tate Britain. The broad, gestural style of Lost Mine reflects the impact of American Abstract Expressionist painters such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, whose work Lanyon first encountered in the early 1950s. Typically for Lanyon, however, its seeming abstraction is combined with a precise external source: a tin mine in his native Cornwall that had been flooded by the sea and abandoned. The colours are…

Peter Lanyon, ‘Headland’ 1948

‘Headland’, Peter Lanyon, 1948 | Tate

Artwork page for ‘Headland’, Peter Lanyon, 1948 Lanyon was born in St Ives and returned to Cornwall after serving with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. Headland – the dramatic convergence of cliffs and sea – reflects Lanyon’s early interest in the ambiguous spaces and edges in nature, the intersections of core and surface, land and water. Like Ivon Hitchens, with whom he corresponded during the 1950s and 1960s, Lanyon looked at landscape from multiple perspectives, recording…
