St Ives artists

Saint Ives in Cornwall has been a so-called ‘art colony’ since the 19th century. The particular light conditions, the nature and the affordable area have long attracted British artists to St Ives.

The cultural significance of St Ives is part of the public conscience in the UK, and Tate has deemed it so important that it opened a Tate in St Ives

Notable artists worth mentioning in this context are:
Barbara Hepworth, Patrick Heron, Frances Hodgkins, Bernard Leach, Peter Lanyon, Ben Nicholson, Marianne Stokes, John Noble Barlow, Thomas Millie Dow, Richard Short, William Holt Yates Titcomb, John Reinhard Weguelin
