Discovering Anchor Studio: An artists’ haven in Newlyn

  • 25th September 2021 to 8th January 2022

This autumn Penlee House Gallery and Museum, Penzance will be staging an exhibition to celebrate the history of Anchor Studio in Newlyn. It was built especially for Stanhope Forbes (1857 – 1947), the leading figure of the Newlyn School, who used it for sixty years. When his famous School of Painting was in operation, generations of artists knew it as Forbes’ central teaching studio.
