Lawrence House Museum is fortunate to be hosting this wonderful exhibition from Monday 3 April until Friday 30 June 2017.

All the paintings on display are from the collection of David Tovey, a leading expert on the artists who came from abroad to join the colony of painters who settled in St Ives in the late 1800s. Many of the paintings have not been on display in the UK before.

Entry to the Museum and exhibition is free. It is hoped that art groups and schools as well as members of the public will take the opportunity to come to see these unique paintings during the currency of the exhibition.

The Museum is open every weekday (including bank holidays) until Friday 27 October during the hours of 10.30 to 4.30 (last admission 4pm) and all Bank Holidays.

During the currency of the exhibition it will also be open on Saturdays 8 April, 13 May & 3 &10 June.

If you want to bring a party of adults, please contact the Curator.
For school parties please contact Judith Cayzer, our education officer see contact details below.
