In 1949 a group of artists broke away from the St Ives Society of Artists to form a new group, The Penwith Society of Arts in Cornwall. Seventy years on from this seismic event, this exhibition looks at the range of works produced by the founder members, many of them the greatest names of 20th century British Art, including Wilhelmina Barns- Graham, Barbara Hepworth, Bernard Leach & Ben Nicholson. It examinres the impact that the St Ives rebels made at the time and the creative tensions that existed between them.

The Munnings Art Museum, Castle Hill, Dedham, Colchester CO7 6AZ

'Behind The Lines: Alfred Munnings, War Artist, 1918'

In 1918 Alfred Munnings was appointed as a war artist in France for the Canadian Cavalry Brigade and later for the Canadian Forestry Corps. At the war's end his paintings were bought by the Canadian Government and are now in the collection of the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. In the centenary year of their first exhibition at the Royal Academy, London in 1919, The Munnings Art Museum is privileged to have on loan from Canada forty-one of these war paintings. The vibrant colours and painterly style of these works is a striking contrast to the familiar black and white images of World War 1. It is a rare opportunity to see these works, alongside sketches and paintings from the Munnings Art Museum's own collection.
