Recently acquired work by Andrew Lanyon

Andrew Lanyon grew up in Cornwall, where his father, the celebrated British painter Peter Lanyon worked alongside Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo. Accordingly, his own work is greatly influenced by the St Ives modernists. He works in paint, sculpture, film and automata amongst other mediums, and much of his work takes a surreal and distinctly whimsical look at his home town of St Ives.
