St Ives Artists

70 years ago, in August 1948, William Scott met the painter and writer Patrick Heron whilst on holiday in St Ives. A friendship developed that lasted the rest of their lives. 10 years after that first encounter, William’s son James took this fabulous photo of Scott and Heron with Peter Lanyon and Jack Smith outside the Tinners Arms in Zennor, Cornwall.
