It is easy to understand why Artists are drawn to Staithes

Art in Staithes
The beauty of the village has always lent itself to art, as shown by the village’s long history of well known painters. The village was home to a small group of twenty to thirty artists known as the “Staithes group” or the “Northern Impressionists.” The group contained renowned artists such as Edward E. Anderson, Joseph R. Bagshawe, Thomas Barrett and James W. Booth and was inspired by other impressionists such as Monet, Cezanne and Renoir. Dame Laura Knight became the most famous member of the Staithes Group; she and her husband and fellow painter Harold Knight kept a studio in the village.
