Painting the Warmth of the Sun by Tom Cross
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The artistic movement now known as "St Ives" started in 1880. Inspired by the people, landscapes and lights of West Cornwall, the artists challenged the accepted Victorian styles, and still exert their influence today. This book describes how, throughout World War II and beyond, despite the deaths of many great painters, the movement continued to exist. The progressive art produced during this period was the achievement of many talented individuals. Tom Cross has also written "The Shining Sands: Artists in Newlyn and St Ives 1880-1930".
