Tate St Ives Gallery 1
20 May – 26 September 2004
Throughout the 20th century, many artists have sought to express their ideas through the essential elements of painting and sculpture: line, shape, scale mass, colour and texture. Artists in St Ives were at the forefront of this movement in Britain, and established a focus for modern art in the area. A selection from the Tate collection, including Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson, Naum Gabo and Roger Hilton.
