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.
