Pilchard Boats on St Ives Beach, Cornwall

JAMA. 2011;305(19):1942. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.511

Australian-born (Richard) Hayley Lever (1876-1958) lived in England and then, for more than half his life, in the United States. Many of his paintings of locations in Cornwall, England, were executed during his stay there, from 1900 to 1911. Yet Lever did not stop painting St Ives, the artists' colony on the northern Cornwall coast, after he moved to New York (JAMA cover, May 27, 1998). Soon, scenes of Nantucket, Gloucester (Massachusetts), and New York emerged, while Lever continued his marine theme. Pilchard Boats on St Ives Beach, Cornwall (cover) epitomizes the Cornish phase of Lever's career, both in style and in subject.
