St Ives, Cornwall, was the unlikely place where British art was redefined in the mid-20th century. The small fishing village was briefly transformed into a centre of modern art with the arrival of Ben Nicolson, Naum Gabo, Barbara Hepworth and many more. This short course follows how it happened, the artists involved and the radical art that they created.
