Borlase Smart: A Passion for the Sea
Borlase Smart settled in St Ives after the First World War and his contribution to its artistic community made a huge and lasting impression. He led the resurgence of artistic life in St Ives in the twentieth century and encouraged the creativity of both the traditional painters and the new avant garde artists. In his personal practice, he excelled at marine painting and this exhibition includes many of his magnificent seascapes that depict the turbulent seas of the West Cornwall coast.
The exhibition also includes a dozen works by his contemporaries, including Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Leonard Fuller, Peter Lanyon, Julius Olsson and John Park.
