Provenance: the artist's estate

Between 1956 and 1965, as Curator of the Newlyn Art gallery, Canney was acquainted with most of the artists working at the time in Cornwall. Many counted amongst his closest friends; of these Scott, Lanyon and Hilton exerted the greatest influence on him during this period.

The evolving geometry seen in this untitled painting is indicative of the increasingly rigorous style which so characterised Canney's later paintings.
