St. Ives - The Art and the Artist

Author(s): Chris Stephens


This is the definitive account of the modern art made in the English seaside town of St Ives between the 1930s and 1960s, telling the story of this extraordinary artistic community and its legacy. The community spanned three generations and included such internationally known figures as Naum Gabo, Barbara Hepworth, and Ben Nicholson, as well as Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron, Terry Frost, and Roger Hilton. They contributed to the international search for art in the post-World War II world and established a modernist practice that had continuing influence late into the last century.
