This high quality hardback book contains over 100 paintings by Tom Cross who has lived in Cornwall for thirty years, many of these in his home overlooking one of the small creeks on the Helford River.
The book contains the fascinating life-story of this artist, teacher and art historian and reveals through his words and paintings the influences in his work, capturing through his Cornish paintings the very spirit of the landscapes of the Helford River.
The Helford River and its surrounding landscape has been described as the jewel in Cornwall’s crown. There is an irresistible romance to the place, its tree-shrouded tidal waters hidden and inaccessible to modern traffic. The place names here have their own beauty and charm; Gweek, Port Navas, Constantine. Here too Daphne du Maurier made Frenchman’s Creek forever famous. These are the influences behind the Helford River paintings of Tom Cross.
