Letter: Artists' migration

Sir: In your article on the new Tate Gallery (23 June), you refer to a number of artists having settled in St Ives during the Twenties. In fact, Barbara Hepworth, Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo moved down as a result of the war in 1939, having failed to convince Moore to leave his London studio and join them.

Nicholson and Wood did stay in St Ives for a period in the Twenties when they met Alfred Wallis as mentioned in the article.

Yours,

ROBIN HUTCHINSON
