A Village With Rich History Of High Quality Art
Polperro has a rich history of high-quality art, produced by both visiting and resident artists since the nineteenth century. The Heritage Art Trail presents some examples within the context of where they were created.
The Polperro Arts Foundation has posted eleven blue signs with QR codes around the village. Each is placed where an artist set up his or her easel many years ago.
Bringing 19th Century Art To Life
Visitors can point the camera of their smart phone or tablet computer at the QR code and an internet link will pop up on their screen. Tapping on the link will reveal a painting which can be compared with the modern view.
