Tom Cross

A collection of images by painter Tom Cross has been digitised and made available online via the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS). Tom Cross produced many paintings and drawings inspired by Cornwall's landscapes and seascapes. Prior to his time at Falmouth, Tom lived and worked all around the country and abroad, and was influenced by a range of popular styles including French Modernism and Russian Constructivism, making him a key British twentieth century artist. University College Falmouth acquired the Tom Cross Archive in 2010. The archive provides a personal account of the life and work of the artist and former Principal through sketchbooks, diary entries, news-cuttings and exhibition catalogues.
