Leonard Fuller (1891 - 1973): A Sympathetic Eye

The portrait and still life painter Leonard John Fuller was one of the key figures in the St Ives artistsí colony. His early artistic promise was interrupted by the First World War where he served alongside fellow artist Robert Borlase Smart. Deeply affected by his war experience, Fuller went on to dedicate his life to teaching and painting. In 1938, he founded the internationally renowned St Ives School of Painting with his wife and fellow artist Marjorie Mostyn. This exhibition focuses on Fullerís prolific output throughout his painting career and includes portraits of his St Ives artist friends, alongside a selection of work by his students and associates, including Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Sven Berlin, Terry Frost, Peter Lanyon, Marjorie Mostyn and Borlase Smart.
