STAITHES & ARTISTS

Staithes is home to the Staithes group or Staithes School and was an art colony of 19th-century painters.

Inspired by French Impressionists such as Monet, CÚzanne and Renoir, the group of about 25 artists worked together in plein air, in oil or watercolour.

The group contained renowned artists such as Laura Knight (who kept a studio in the village with her husband and fellow painter Harold Knight), Frederick W. Jackson, Edward E. Anderson, Joseph R. Bagshawe, Thomas Barrett and James W. Booth.

Today the village is still home to talented artists who exhibit their work in the local galleries.
