The Cornwall Artists Index (CAI) evolved from Dr Melissa Hardie's 2009 publication, ARTISTS IN NEWLYN AND WEST CORNWALL 1880-1940. This dictionary and source-book was based on material from the West Cornwall Arts Archive, a collection which documented the development of west Cornwall as a focus for artistic endeavour from the nineteenth century onwards. In addition to A-Z entries for Cornwall's artists, the book also contains source material not available elsewhere, such as essays, exhibition catalogues, and historical sketches based on original research. Such was the success of this publication that it was decided to create from it an online database of artists, to be known as the Cornwall Artists Index.
