Synopses & Reviews
Bryan Wynter drew upon nature as the principal source for his art. From his windswept, isolated cottage Wynter explored and studied the life of the Cornish moors, and that unique environment lies behind all of his work. From his early neo-romantic landscapes he developed a new style of gestural abstraction that secured his position as one of the leading British artists of the 1950s. In this, the first book on Wynter, the broad range of his output is presented within the context of his life, the issues and phenomena that stimulated him, and the dominant art and ideas of the period.
