SVEN BERLIN - Polymath

7th to 30th October 2017

An exhibition of sculpture, paintings, drawings and prints by one of the major names of St Ives post-War art. Sven Berlin arrived in Cornwall in the mid 1930s, before even Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth, and was a founder member of the Crypt Group (1946). After leaving St Ives he lived among the gypsies of the New Forest before finally settling in Dorset, where he died in 1999. An awesomely creative man, Berlin's work was full of the passion and enthusiasm of a man fascinated by life, displaying consummate draughtsmanship, and imbued with an indomitable polymathic spirit.
