This is the first catalogue raisonné of Lanyon’s oil paintings and three-dimensional works – all 613 of them. A substantial and beautifully produced volume by the publisher behind the marvellous William Nicholson catalogue of a few years ago (the latter in collaboration with Yale.)
“…Uneasy, loveable man, give me your painting
Hand to steady me on the word-road home.
Lanyon, why is it that you’re earlier away?…”
From W S Graham’s ‘The Thermal Stair’, his elegy to his friend, killed in a gliding accident.
