Note: The angular shapes with dramatic strong colours are typical of the artists works made in the 1960’s and ’70’s. Heron was an important member of the St Ives School and suggested that these represented the fields, rivers, lakes and seas of his native Cornwall viewed from up high in the sky. As well as painting and tapestry design, Patrick Heron has also designed a stained glass window for the Tate Gallery in St. Ives and designed a kneeler to encircle the Henry Moore altar at St. Stephen Wallbrook in London.
