Queer Cornwall: Marlow Moss, Gluck and Ithell Colquhoun in Lamorna
Video (12.25): Queer Cornwall: Marlow Moss, Gluck and Ithell Colquhoun in Lamorna, a video by Tate Gallery (2021).
Tate (UK) writes, ‘ Lamorna is a small village on the Cornish coast, in the far southwest of Britain. The expansive skies and landscapes of the area have long been a draw for artists, most famously painters associated with the Newlyn school such as Laura Knight, Alfred Munnings and Lamorna Birch. Less well known are the ground-breaking queer artists who set down roots in the village: Marlow Moss, Gluck and Ithell Colquhoun. In this film, we tell their story, and the story of the Cornwall where they lived and loved: a place of international modernism, Celtic spiritualism and the queer avant-garde.’
