Tate St Ives

Art gallery in St Ives, Cornwall, displaying British and international modern and contemporary art. Includes Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Situated on the site of a former gas works, the gallery stands high above magnificent Porthmeor Beach. In recognition of the international importance of st ives and the surrounding area in the art world, 1993 saw the opening of the Tate Gallery, st ives by H.R.H. Prince Charles. Perhaps the flagship of Cornish Art, this imposing building, with its spectacular stained glass window by acclaimed painter Patrick Heron, has won awards for architectural design. From here, in 1887, the Finnish master Helene Schjerfbeck painted her classic 'A View of st ives'. The building, a work of art in itself, was designed by award winning architects Eldred Evans and David Shalev.
