Denys Law (1907-1981): Newlyn School mid 20th cent. Oil on board 'Stream, Lamorna Valley' near Mousehole on the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall, signed lower right, framed. 20ins. x 16ins.
Denys Law was an important member of the mid 20th century artists community of Lamorna in Cornwall. He was an active member of the St Ives Society of Artists (1949 81) and the?Newlyn Society of Artists. ?He was educated at St Petroc's School, Rock in North Cornwall, which was owned by a Miss Vivian who had a house in Lamorna. His family probably holidayed with her in Lamorna in these early years.
After the war, he moved down to the village of Nantewas in Lamorna with his second wife, Ann, as his sister was now the landlady of The Wink public house in the village. He took up painting full time, supplementing his income with a variety of odd jobs including fishing, copperwork, carving wood and making furniture, whilst his wife used a loom to weave textiles. He was greatly influenced by the leaders of the Lamorna artistic community, but did not take lessons with either Lamorna Birch or Stanley Gardiner, preferring to approach the artistic challenges of the Valley on his own terms.
