Harry Ousey came to Cornwall to be part of the inspirational group of artists surrounding Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth. He would collect ideas for his abstract paintings observing the shapes of drifting clouds, the patterns of dry-stone walls, the flow of water, and the colour and scent of wild flowers.

His work ranks alongside the highest achievements of the St Ives School.
