Newlyn school


A colony of artists around Newlyn, a fishing village adjacent to Penzance, Cornwall, England, it was active from the 1880s to the early 20th Century. Walter Langley is credited as the founder. Similar to the California plein-air movement, it was inspired by the Barbizon School of painting, and attracted artists seeking rural settings in 'pure' natural light. The area also had other attractions such as inexpensive accommodations and models who charged very little money. Participants included Lamorna Birch, Stanhope Forbes, Norman Garstin, and Frederick Hall. Source: Wikipedia,
