Fuller, Leonard John, 1891-1973; Autumn Sunshine

Leonard Fuller (1891-1973) was a St Ives painter, there was an exhibition¬†at Penlee House a couple of years ago but he is still little¬†known outside Cornwall. ‘His early artistic promise was interrupted by the First World War; deeply affected by his war experience, Fuller went on to dedicate his life to teaching and painting. In 1938, he founded the internationally renowned St Ives School of Painting with his wife and fellow artist Marjorie Mostyn’ (Penlee). This is Autumn Sunshine, it is undated but pre-1933.
