Peter Scott Gallery Art Talk: The St Ives Artists

Date:24 June 2008

Michael Bird, 7pm Tuesday 24 June, Elizabeth Livingston Lecture Theatre

St Ives is unique in British art history. Between the Second World War and the 1970s, many progressive artists chose to work and often settle around this small port in the far west of Cornwall. An illustrated talk will be de given by writer Michael Bird, marking the release of his new book The St Ives Artists: A Biography of Place and Time, published by Lund Humphries. Michael opens up new ground in exploring connections between the St Ives artists and contemporary developments in society, literature and other fields. St Ives artists are represented in the Peter Scott Gallery's collections.
