Art Archive

The image shows Thomas Cooper Gotch as the Green Knight from Elizabeth Forbes book, King Arthur’s Wood (archive reference 1103). The Art Archive has two main sections: one about the artists and crafts people associated with West Cornwall and the other about the art framework within which they operated.

The Art Database below contains four main areas: Arts and Crafts, WCAA, Modern Artists and the Newlyn Colony of Artists.
