The Coast of Cornwall in Art
This lecture takes you on a journey through time round the coast of Cornwall, from the Lizard to Falmouth, Newlyn, Mousehole and St Ives. It moves from paintings and engravings made in the 18th and early 19th centuries by artists such as J.M.W. Turner, Clarkson Stansfield and William Daniell, through the era of impressionism and expressionism with artists such as Terrick Williams and Oskar Kokoschka, to contemporary artists such as Jamie Medlin and Andrew Tozer and many more.
