Alfred Wallis, Artist and Mariner

£50.00

Product description

Scarce book. The hardback book is 'as new', clean with no inscriptions, but the dust jacket has two 1cm tears on the lower front edge. The life of the Cornish primitive artist Alfred Wallis (1855-1942) remains a constant source of fascination to the growing number of people with an interest in those artists of Cornwall who comprised the Newlyn and St Ives School. Seaman, fisherman and later dealer in secondhand goods and scrap, it was not until Wallis was in his seventies and eighties that painting became a compulsion which was to last until the end of his life. Though much has been written about his influence on British art, little has been done to directly examine the sources of the images themselves in order to draw out the character and inspiration of the man behind them.
