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.
