Respected as an artist of singular vision, Matthew Lanyon's passion for the landscape and cultural legacy of his beloved Cornwall have made him one of the county's most important painters. A copy of Homer's 'The Iliad' given to him as a child, the 'wondrous' blackboard diagrams drawn by his school Geology teacher and the 'Just So' stories read to him by his mother, were all influences in a lifetime of creativity.
