Art Blog from Cornwall

Following last week's blog"The Magical History of Painting in St Ives: The Artists Who Were Drawn to Its Soft Light and Turquoise Sea" John and I decided that we should explore the area ourselves and take in the beauty of all the things St Ives and the surrounding area have to offer. If you're looking for a picturesque walk with plenty of art history thrown in, look no further than the route from Carbis Bay to St Ives. The winding path takes you past some stunning scenery and through the quaint town of St Ives, home to many famous artists over the years. We'll take a look at some of their work and explore the town that played such an important role in their development.
The seaside town of St Ives, Cornwall, has been a popular destination for artists since the 1800s. The soft light and dramatic scenery have drawn painters, photographers, and sculptors to the town to capture its beauty on canvas and in sculpture. In this blog post, we will take a look at the history of British art and painting in St Ives and theartists who were drawn to its unique landscape. It's an incredible place with a rich history and beautiful scenery.
