100 Places - Art, Architecture & Sculpture
The artist and her muse are synonymous. But often the muse is a place and not a person. The 'matchstick men' painter, LS Lowry, took his inspiration from the people and sights of Pendlebury in Lancashire where he lived and worked for more than 40 years. The Cornish fishing town of St Ives inspired Barbara Hepworth's sculptural work for many decades.
Which places that inspired an artist's work or an artistic movement do you think should be included in A History of England in 100 Places? What places house the most important works of art to the history of England? What buildings are important for their architectural interest, or for the people who designed or built them?
