Bryan Pearce was born in St Ives in 1929, a sufferer of the then unknown condition Phenylketonuria, which affects the development of the brain. From 1953 to 1957 he attended St Ives School of Painting under Leonard Fuller. Now celebrated as one of the country's foremost naive painters, Pearce is well known for his images of St Ives and still-life compositions in oil, conte, pen and ink, and pencil.
