The Life of Alfred Wallis by Molly Russon

Regular price £10.00 Sale

This is the story of Cornish fisherman-turned-artist Alfred Wallis, whose paintings of boats from his past inspired the future of British modern art.

Told from Wallis’ perspective - inspired by his crudely written letters to Jim Ede - this book takes the reader through his remarkable life; his early sailing days, his late arrival to painting, his encounters with ‘proper’ artists and his battle with mental health.

Wallis’ naïve yet poignant work has captured the imagination of many. His paintings are a portal into Wallis’ world of ships, boats and the sea; and his deep concern for preserving ‘what used to be’.
