William Black was a St Ives artist who began his career as an architect. In the 1950s he came into money and ran away to St Ives to become a professional artist, studying under Joh Tunnard and associating with other artists like Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth. Black rarely put up work for sale during his lifetime and is known for his architectural and deconstructivist sculptures which espoused the modernist spirit of the St Ives group in the 1960s.

Condition: generally very good.
