TateShots: Peter Lanyon

The Tate visits St Ives to tour the Peter Lanyon exhibition, and curator Chris Stephens explores two of Lanyon’s most famous works: "The Yellow Runner" and "St Just." Lanyon, one of the most innovative figures in twentieth-century British art, saw himself as remaking the tradition of landscape painting, using landscape to express ideas about states of being and the human condition.
