Original Paintings by all our Cornish Artists

Cornish Art

We have the most amazing selection of Cornish art and paintings of Cornwall, Somerset, France & Italy, London, and other paintings of the world by some of the UK's leading contemporary artists. Our family of Cornish artists are the most acclaimed painters in Cornwall. Artist Ted Dyer is Cornwall's most widely collected artist and his son John Dyer is Cornwall's best known and best loved naive artist. John Dyer's wife Joanne Short is recognised as Cornwall's leading colourist painter and is an elected member of the prestigious Newlyn Society of Artists. The John Dyer Gallery showcases the latest Cornish art from our artists and the latest exhibitions.

Our acclaimed online Cornish art gallery was launched in 2005 to bring the artists' stunning Cornish art and paintings directly to collectors around the world.

We have thousands of collectors all over the world who have purchased online from our Cornish gallery and we have built up unique professional working relationships with many leading organisations around the world to exhibit our Cornish artists' work in a variety of amazing locations at our special exhibition events.

We welcome our clients by private appointment to view Cornish art and paintings with us at our gallery in Falmouth, Cornwall.

The Cornish art and paintings we represent and sell is the very best available and fits onto Cornwall's historic art timeline. All of our Cornish artists are recognised nationally and internationally, and have original paintings held in UK national collections, in museums, art galleries and leading organisations. 

Paintings of Cornwall, made by Cornish artists, are among the most collected and sought after anywhere in the world. We regularly sell original paintings of Cornwall to buyers in the UK, America, Japan, New Zealand, Australia and Europe. The county of Cornwall has such a special landscape, light, history and art heritage which has created an atmosphere and community that Cornish artists thrive on and has formed the perfect conditions for generations of inspired artists and paintings. It is rare to find a place like Cornwall that creates so much outstanding contemporary art.

From the early Cornish artists of the Newlyn School of art colony, to the progressive modernist artists of the St Ives School of Art and now the leading postmodern Cornish artists, John Dyer, Joanne Short and Ted Dyer from the Falmouth School of Art, (who all have examples of their Cornish paintings purchased for the nation and displayed at the public Falmouth Art Gallery), this cultural triangle has a greater density of creatives than could possibly be expected in such a remote part of the UK. Cornish art really is something special, and it has an enduring appeal and fascination to artists and collectors alike that has lasted for generations.

We are proud to be a leading art gallery in Cornwall and to represent key Cornish artists whose work will be collected and admired for generations to come.
