Peter Lanyon
Exhibition: 9th Oct 2010 to 23rd Jan 2011
Peter Lanyon has come increasingly to be seen as one of the most important innovative figures in twentieth century British art. Nevertheless, this will be the first thorough retrospective for almost forty years.

Lanyon was the leading exponent of abstract expressionism in Britain in the 1950s. In tandem with contemporaries in America and Europe he developed a new language for painting with his unmatched formal and technical experimentation. Though his roots were in the Constructivism of Naum Gabo, he saw himself as remaking the tradition of landscape painting, using landscape and places to express ideas about states of being and the human condition.
