Historical Artist - Patrick Heron (1920 - 1999)

Patrick Heron was a British painter, designer, and writer who was initially influenced by the work of Henri Matisse and Georges Braque. In 1956, he moved to Cornwall, took up abstraction and became a member of the St. Ives School. His paintings were a combination of stripe compositions and more organic shapes, all done in vibrant colors. Heron’s books included The Changing Forms of Art in 1955 and The Shape of Colour in 1973. Many of his works can be seen at The Tate Collection, London and at Tate, St Ives, Cornwall. On 24 May 2004, the Momart warehouse fire destroyed a number of Heron’s most important works.
