Penzance - Art in St Ives

Journey to charming St Ives today for an insight into the famous art movement that found it’s home here in the early 20th Century – a tradition that continues today.

Walk through the pretty streets of St Ives to the Tate Gallery for a study of artists’ work that has been inspired by the Cornish scenery, myths and legends. Particularly celebrated is the work of a young group of painters, potters and sculptors who set up a seaside art colony here in the 1920s (of which Barbara Hepworth was a member). The gallery itself is designed to frame a panoramic view of Porthmeor Beach in order to remind visitors of the natural Cornish countryside that inspired much of the art on display.

Return back through the maze of street to the famous Barbara Hepworth Museum which displays her work in the landscaped gardens and studio house in which she lived and worked.
