Painting on Sea (3): To Sunny Cornwall

Saturday 25th March: Sunny Days in Cornwall (1900s)

We enter the 20th-century bathed in sunlight as the influence of French Impressionism takes us back down to Cornwall. We are in holiday mood. Artists such as Lamorna Birch, Alfred Munnings and Laura Knight find themselves enraptured by clear air, warm sunshine and blue seas: children paddle, artists sketch and colours become golden bright.
