From that time onwards it has been the inspiration and home of many notable painters, attracted by the quality of light, its natural beauty and the international community of artists which developed there. The popular 1985 exhibition at the Tate Gallery reawakened an interest in St Ives, and the debate around the show led to the opening of Tate Gallery St Ives eight years later. The exhibition catalogue was in such demand that it sold out almost immediately. It is here reprinted as a classic work on this remarkable group of artists, many of whom are still vigorously working and exhibiting.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In 1985 an exhibition at the Tate Gallery focused attention on the art and artists of St. Ives, a small town in the far west of Cornwall. The catalog for that exhibit is made available again, with its insightful essay by David Lewis, along with updated bibliographies and biographies of the artists. Barbara Hepworth, Mary Jewels, Tony O'Malley, Alfred Wallis, and Ben Nicholson, to name just a few, are among the 45 artists and 19 potters whose work is represented. St. Ives art was a regional school, yet internationally minded, and sophisticated in its rethinking of the natural world in abstract terms. Contains color photos of exhibition items. 9.5x12<"> Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
