Patrick Heron, 78, is one of the leading figures of British 20th century art. He has spent most of his career in Cornwall, where he was one of the leading lights of the extraordinary artistic community of the Penwith peninsula which included Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Peter Lanyon and Roger Hilton. His use of colour is still exuberant. Colour, he once said, is "both the subject and the means, the form and content, the image and the meaning in my painting".
