Fishermen in a Millionaire's Home Run by the Bulldog Trust
In 1895 William Waldorf Astor, later Viscount Astor, built the imposing structure now known as Two Temple Place. He died in 1919 and the building was damaged during World War 2 and restored a few years later. Last year it re-opened to the public for an exhibition of works by William Morris, hosted by the Bulldog Trust, and it will be open again later this month for Amongst Heroes: The Artist in Working Cornwall.

This exhibition brings together works painted in St Ives and Newlyn, mainly between 1880 and 1920. It depicts men and women at work against a coastal working landscape whilst focusing on the geography, history and narrative of the art works.

I attended the William Morris exhibition last year and would advise a visit in 2013 both for viewing this collection of Cornish art and as an opportunity of touring around a beautiful late Victorian property.
