The drawings of Peter Lanyon by Margaret Garlake ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Peter Lanyon stood at the forefront of landscape painting in Europe during the late 1950s and early 1960s. A prominent St. Ives artist, he was associated with Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo: his work also has affinities with Abstract Expressionism. Lanyon's career started just as the study of drawing was being liberated from nineteenth-century academic constrictions. His many drawings range from records of trips to the Netherlands and Italy to portrait sketches and abstract studies. Lanyon also used drawings extensively in the development of some of his most important paintings. In this substantial and original study, Margaret Garlake explores Lanyon's theory and practice of drawing: the contribution of drawings to the evocation of place in paintings; his use of models and the metamorphosis of the human body into landscape images, as well as his use of three-dimensional constructions as equivalents to drawing."--BOOK JACKET
Peter Lanyon : at the edge of landscape by Chris Stephens ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Peter Lanyon was one of the most exciting and original landscape painters of the 20th Century. The only native-born Cornishman of the St Ives artists, Lanyon's representation of the land he grew up in was complex and passionate: for him it was part social history, part myth, part aesthetic. This book -- the first major assessment of Lanyon's work -- explores how the artist's words and paintings interrogate the very notion of how landscape is perceived and conceived. It tells of Lanyon's singular place within the 20th century's major art movements -- abstraction and the post-war British figurative tradition -- alongside his strong belief in employing landscape and place to explore questions of personal identity. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
