Cornwall may be known for its tranquil sandy coves, Ann’s famous pasties and the striking hero, Ross Poldark. However, there is no forgetting that Cornwall is a county steeped in art history, with artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Terry Frost, Ben Nicholson and Laura Knight all taking inspiration from Cornwall’s rugged landscape.
