PENLEE HOUSE GALLERY AND MUSEUM, PENZANCE

Penlee House Gallery and Museum is the only Cornish public gallery specialising in the Newlyn School artists (c.1880 - c.1940) including Stanhope and Elizabeth Forbes, Walter Langley, Harold Harvey and Laura Knight. Its ambitiously expanding permanent collection is used as the springboard for changing exhibitions and displays, which feature different aspects of West Cornwall’s important and unique art history from 1880 to 1940 (please note that there is no permanent display and the Gallery is occasionally closed for re-hanging: please check before travelling). The museum collections cover the archaeology and social history of the Penwith district and there is an extensive photographic archive, holding thousands of images.
