This is the remarkable story of a colony of artists, inspired by the people, landscape, and light of West Cornwall. Now internationally celebrated, they are to be forever associated with the small fishing ports of Newlyn and St. Ives.
In The Shining Sands, Tom Cross records the life and work of these artists, from the earliest arrivals in the 1870's through to the decade following the Second World War. In this period the artists' colonies grew into one of the most significant art movements of recent times, the influence of which directly inspired the post war 'modern' movements, and which reverberate even today.
