Between 1945 and 1956 Heron visited Cornwall regularly with his wife Delia and small children. He painted a number of works of the view from the cottage they rented at 3 St Andrew’s Street, which overlooked the harbour and sea wall. The full force of a storm would be experienced with waves crashing over the house which was sometimes flooded.
