About this title:

Synopsis: Cornwall is artist country, immortalised by the colonies at St Ives, Newlyn and Lamorna. For generations this peninsula of big skies and swelling seas has beguiled artists with its renowned quality of light. So much so, that today Cornwall has one of the highest populations of artists and crafts-people in the country. Its ancient landscape has also been a popular retreat for poets, writers and musicians, both resident and visitors alike. Whether inspired by her dramatic coastline, countryside, moorland, rivers or harbours, the Cornish landscape has more than matched their creative needs. This book is a celebration of the character and 'spirit' of a unique landscape in words and pictures. It presents the reader with a fascinating glimpse into the artist's own personal and physical relationship with the place and it also brings together for the first time some of its most celebrated contemporary artists. Some are published for the first time, alongside others who have received much international acclaim. Between them they encompass a wide variety of subjects, styles, media, as well as working methods. Complimenting the paintings the author provides a fascinating commentary, which also includes musings and extracts from poets and writers associated with the county. The author is a professional artist and a native of Devon. However, his connections with Cornwall go back a long way and have been instrumental in shaping both his life and career. This lavishly illustrated book features 130 paintings, many of which have been reproduced for the first time. All who are passionate about the Cornish landscape will treasure this handsome volume. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Ray Balkwill, SWAc is a well-known West Country artist whose connections with Cornwall span five decades. Although his roots lie deep in the red earth of Devonshire, Cornwall has been instrumental in shaping both his life and career.
