Lanyon was fascinated by the confrontation between man and nature. This piece touches on the idea, where the layered and gestural surface of the painting invokes the turbulent sea and the interplay of complex natural forces.
Born in St Ives, Cornwall, Peter Lanyon’s works on landscapes lean heavily towards abstraction. In 1939, he met established artists Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo, who had moved to St Ives on the outbreak of war. Lanyon received private art tuition from Nicholson.
Lanyon took up gliding as a pastime and used his experiences extensively in his paintings. During the 1950s he became a prominent figure in the St. Ives group of artists. He died in Taunton, Somerset, as the result of injuries he sustained from a gliding accident, and is buried in St. Uny's Church, Lelant.
