The next event in 2015 will take place on 28 November 2015 and will accompany the exhibition SOARING FLIGHT: PETER LANYON'S GLIDING PAINTINGS (15 October 2015 – 17 January 2016).
In his search for a new, immersive way of experiencing land, sea and air, the Cornish landscape painter Peter Lanyon took up gliding in the late 1950s. He sought to capture his multi-sensory perceptions in a number of extraordinary, near-abstract paintings, which are brought together for the first time in The Courtauld Gallery’s Soaring Flight: Peter Lanyon’s Gliding Paintings. Join curators Toby Treves and Barnaby Wright, and colleagues, in exploring Lanyon’s modernity as well as his roots in an older British tradition of landscape painting.
A programme and booking form will be online soon.
