Soaring Flight: Peter Lanyon’s Gliding Paintings – In Context

The next study day will take place on 28 November 2015, 10:30 – 4.30, and will accompany the exhibition Soaring Flight: Peter Lanyon’s Gliding Paintings (15 October 2015 – 17 January 2016).

In his search for a new way of experiencing land, sea and air, Cornish landscape painter Peter Lanyon took up gliding in the late 1950s, creating a number of extraordinary, near-abstract paintings.

Join curators Toby Treves and Barnaby Wright in exploring Lanyon’s modernity as well as his roots in an older British tradition of landscape painting.

Places are limited and advance booking is required (£45/£40 concessions, with morning and afternoon refreshments).
