I was interested to read yesterday that a new film is in production which looks at The Newlyn School of artists of which Harold Harvey was a member. I wrote about his lovely paintings here last year.

Coloured Wools 1919 Harold Harvey
Apparently the film focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group (which included Alfred Munnings and Laura and Harold Knight, not sure if that includes Harold) and a  love triangle involving aspiring artist Florence Carter-Wood.
This is a period drama set in the beauty of the Cornish coast; a good old tale of love, liberty, and scandal amongst the Edwardian artists’ colony (as only the Brits can do!) Looking forward to it already (not sure when its released) but might get started on the book first.
