Falmouth Art Gallery

Rubbish photo of a fine painting. Best go along to see it for real.

 

This was a very pleasant suprise. A relatively small gallery but with some fine works interspersed with quirky working models with wind up handles. These acted as a great “eye rest” from viewing too many paintings. I particulary liked a painting by Sir Frank Brangwyn called Construction of South Pier Mevagissey. There were some good Henry Scott Tuke paintings too. Although much of the collection was rightly Cornish related there were also Matisse prints and some good Pre-Rafelite studies. A very worthwhile visit. Free too.

 

The weather was fine for most of the day so we went for a good long walk and ended up for lunch and a swim on Gylly Beach. The cafe here is first rate and well worth the walk from town.

Grits not going to like this! Garlic bread, yummy.
