The art movement known as the Newlyn School flourished from the 1880s onwards with artists who lived and worked in Newlyn using the busy fishing port as a backdrop for their pictures.
World-famous artists, such as Walter Langley and Stanhope Forbes, made their reputations by painting scenes of everyday life and many of these works of art now hang in Penlee House Gallery & Museum.
Director of the gallery, Louise Connell, said: "Now, for the first time, the wonderful art of the Newlyn School and the places that inspired it have been brought together in a handy map.
"Visitors to Newlyn can use the map to wander in the artists' footsteps, discovering the places where they lived and worked.
"It features dozens of illustrations of some of the most popular pictures from Penlee's art collection, close to where they were painted.
"Although some of the sites have been demolished or changed over the years, a surprising amount of the original history remains."
The map has been written by local historian Dr Jo Mattingly and funded with a grant from the Heritage Lottery.
It is available from the shop at Penlee House Gallery & Museum for just £1.
Penlee House Gallery & Museum is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am – 4.30pm. Last admission is at 4pm.
