This course continues the history of Newlyn art with the Forbes School of Painting which ran from 1899 – 1939 with over 200 students. Individual lectures focus on some of the School’s students including Dod and Ernest Procter. Other artists who met at the School such as Ruth and Charles Simpson and Jill and Geoffrey Garnier are also analysed. In addition, the work of one of Cornwall’s own sons, Harold Harvey is surveyed. In addition there is a study of the influential Samuel John Lamorna Birch, who was a leader in Cornish landscape painting.
We also look at the art and lives of visitors to the Lamorna Valley and in particular Alfred Munnings, Laura and Harold Knight and the unfortunate story of Florence Carter-Wood fictionalised in ‘Summer in February’. The course ends with lecture on the art made for the vicar of St. Hilary Church, the Rev. Bernard Walke by his wife Annie and some of the other Newlyn artists.
