Roger Hilton visited Cornwall regularly from the mid-1950s, settling there in 1965. Like the other St Ives artists, he responded to the seasons and atmosphere of the area in a non-figurative way. 'June 1960' is a particularly subtle and harmonious work, its title simply the month in which it was painted. Hilton stated 'the picture is to be not primarily an image, but a space-creating mechanism… Abstract art is the result of an attempt to make pictures more real, an attempt to come nearer to the essence of painting'.
