John Wells (1907-2000) was a London medical student in the late 1920s when he first began to meet some of the English painters and sculptors gathered around St. Ives in Cornwall. From the mid-thirties until the end of World War II, Wells worked as "GP for the Scilly Isles" while staying in contact with artist friends on the mainland. After the War he gave up medicine and joined them as a full-time St Ives artist.
