The Newlyn School of Painting Catherine Wallace Wednesday 13 November 2019

Three sessions which chart the rise of the movement, with the earlier paintings of Stanhope Ford's, such as ‘Fish Sale on a Cornish Beach’, and his wife Elisabeth, who achieved great acclaim for her depictions of children.

Catherine then looks at the Forbes School of Painting, which drew more than 200 artists from all over the English world during its 40-year existence, and in a final section she considers the work of a Cornish-born painter, Harold Harvey, his wife also a painter, and friends such as Laura Knight.
