Borlase Smart (1881-1947) was a painter who settled in St Ives, Cornwall, after serving in the First World War. There he played a pivotal role in supporting and encouraging the younger artists who arrived over the following years and created the Modernist colony that was to become so influential. This book tells the story of his contributions to the artistic and wider community, as well as exploring the work that made him an accomplished artist in his own right.
