St Ives, now a centre for modern British art, was one of many coastal art colonies established in small rural communities around the country in the late 19th century. Often linked by friendships made while studying, the artists offered mutual support ranging from shared studio space to marriage. With more than 100 reproductions and archive photographs, this collective study looks at eight such communities: Newlyn, Lamorna, St Ives, Walberswick, Staithes, Cullercoats, Cockburnspath and Kirkcudbright.
