Long before the St Ives School of painting began, artists had been visiting the small fishing town on the north coast of Cornwall. By the early twentieth century, artists were beginning to take up residence in the town. Following the Second World War, many younger artists were attracted to St Ives, due to the growing reputation of the established group of painters, sculptors and potters.

These Five Sessions will explore the history of this 'Artists' Colony' which peaked in the mid-20th C and is now regarded as one of the centres of British Modern Art History.
