The loan show is a chance for the Bury Street gallery, which specialises in Modern British art, to support the legacy of the artists it represents. Many of these are no longer producing works and the chance to put on these shows is an opportunity to encourage discussions around them.
Cornwall Inside Out brings together a number of his landscapes from public and private collections to mark the publication of the first catalogue raisonné of his work. Highlights in the exhibition include pictures from the David Bowie collection and from the Arts Council of England and the British Council.
Running until March 16, the exhibition is curated by art historian Toby Treves, author of the catalogue raisonné, which reveals that Lanyon often took months and even years over his works, which have often been thought of as spontaneous and abstract.
In compiling the catalogue, several previously unknown works were discovered including the prize-winning Orpheus, which was found in the deserted ex-headquarters of a textiles manufacturer in Italy, and Rising Wind, which was found in the VIP changing room of a Neiman Marcu department store in Dallas, Texas, where it remains.
