John Brett devoted much of his time to painting the sea and the coast of the British Isles, including, as this sumptuous book shows, the many faces and colours of Cornwall. Painting during long family holidays, he left over 200 known views of the coastline from Fowey in the east to Bude in the north. In thirty years, he recorded with Ruskinian precision and Pre-Raphaelite intensity of colour its varied beauties, revelling in the diverse moods of sea and sky, the golden sands and the majesty and grandeur of the Cornish cliffs.
