"Von Ribbentrop in St Ives is an exhibition and a book by painter, author and filmmaker Andrew Lanyon. The exhibition revolves around two seemingly unrelated moments in history. Joachim Von Ribbentrop, German Ambassador for Britain and later Foreign Minister in Nazi Germany holidayed in Cornwall in the 1930s and gathered intelligence in preparation for a German attack on Britain. The other event is the 'discovery' by the London-based artists Ben Nicholson and Christopher Wood of Cornish fisherman-turned-painter Alfred Wallis in 1928. Perfectly suited to the backdrop of the house at Kettle's Yard [University of Cambridge], the exhibition includes works by Andrew Lanyon, his father Peter Lanyon, Alfred Wallis, Ben Nicholson, Alexander Calder and Naum Gabo, archival material, interactive models and specially commissioned works by Paul Chaney, Kenny Everett, Olly Hadfield, Chris James, Sam Lanyon, Peter Mates, Debbie Prosser, Paul Spooner, Stella Turk and Carlos Zapata."--Kettle's Yard website.
