Modern Art and St. Ives explores the art and artists associated with this seaside Cornwall town from 1915 to 1965. The authors investigate how the art of St. Ives drew upon two key strands of modern art: the utopian ideal of constructivism that began in Moscow in the 1910s and continued through Berlin and Paris between the world wars, and the tradition of craft and the handmade. Major works by leading St. Ives artists such as Peter Lanyon, Barbara Hepworth, and Ben Nicholson are placed alongside the work of their contemporaries from elsewhere in Europe, North America, and beyond.
