Surrealists in Cornwall: The 85th Anniversary

Surrealists in Cornwall: The 85th Anniversary

Andrew Lanyon ‘Reconstruction of Man Ray’s Metronome’, 2004. Falmouth Art Gallery.

During the summer of 1937, an extraordinary group of Surrealist artists came on holiday to Cornwall for the first time. Among them were some of the most influential and original painters, sculptors, writers and photographers of the 20th century.

This exhibition celebrates the 85th anniversary of their holiday with the display of photographs by Lee Miller, Man Ray, Roland Penrose alongside original artworks by Eileen Agar and Max Ernst. The artworks reveal the rich vein of surrealist activity that occurred during their stay at a manor house near Falmouth.
