Scope note
Refers to the styles of a disparate group of artists working around the coastal town of Saint Ives, Cornwall, England. Although there was a group of painters in St Ives active from the late 19th century, that group of artists was part of a landscape and plein-air tradition. Today, the term 'St Ives School' is most associated with the modernist school of painters active in Saint Ives from the mid-20th century. Notable artists in the St Ives School include Barbara Hepworth, Naum Gabo, Terry Frost, Peter Lanyon, Bryan Wynter, and Patrick Heron.
