The title of the painting, 'Corsham Towers', confirms its place of origin as Corsham Court where Lanyon was given a studio. Lanyon's time in Bath coincided with the period when he was working on 'Porthleven', his entry for the 1951 Festival of Britain exhibition. Porthleven was a major oil which represented a radical leap forward in British painting and there are similarities with Corsham Towers. This painting complements other oils and sculptures by former Bath Academy teachers in the collection.
